Product Description
This is a final project to be used at the conclusion of a reading of Jonathan Swift's A Modest Proposal. It requires students, working in pairs, to compose their own work of satire. The assignment requires them to create a four panel satirical brochure. In this brochure, they must:

★ Identify a real social problem and propose a satirical solution to it.
★ Include features of satire: hyperbole, humor, and logic.
★ Include the classic rhetorical appeals: logos (a logical appeal), pathos (an emotional appeal), and ethos (credibility).
★ Utilize visual features of brochures (images, graphs, etc.).

I included the assignment itself and a helpful rubric. The assignment also mentions two suggested programs and a free website students can use to create their brochures. When I did this with my own students, I had them present their brochures in front of the class. Then, I displayed them on a board in the hallway (with a disclaimer to make sure viewers knew that they were satirical!).
