This is an example of how an attractive tri-fold brochure can be made on a book or author in lieu of other types of book reports. The brochure was created in Microsoft Publisher with one of its standard templates. Microsoft Publisher is easy to use software that students are not nearly as exposed to as PowerPoint. It can be used to make brochures, timelines, newspapers, and many more printed materials that will be useful to students while they are in school and later when they enter the business world. If you are not familiar with Microsoft Publisher or want some simple instructions that students can refer to, please check out my “Microsoft Publisher for Dummies” product. It includes a brochure on making brochures, a poster on making posters, and a banner on making banners or timelines.
