I use this project while I am working with my students on persuasive writing. With this project students use Microsoft Publisher to create a travel brochure for a locations from one of the Ancient civilizations of the Americas. Students like this project because they begin to see the connection between persuasive writing in essays and in media including advertisements. I also break down the project to include note sheets on sources, peer revision (you may use whatever strategy your students are familiar with, and then the final due date). I also include a checklist students can follow to complete the project.
