DESKTOP PUBLISHING ACTIVITIES - "Extra Credit-Extra Challenges-Extra Fun" - is the "Frosting on the Cake" after the students have finished ALL of the 30 activities and find themselves wanting additional challenges, fun, and perhaps extra credit.
All of the desktop publishing activities that the author has written are from the course curriculum she has developed for use in her own classes; therefore, each set of the six becomes progressively more difficult as students progress through the various parts. These six activities reinforce their learning and skill building and it is always interesting to see what they come up with when they have great ideas "to spare." Before implementing these EXTRA CREDIT - EXTRA CHALLENGES - EXTRA FUN activities, it is important that students possess the basic concepts of publishing by completing the first six sets that the Education Get Real author offers in this series.
If students have Photoshop and other powerful software packages available in your classroom, the sky is the limit as to what they can achieve in creating graphics to include in these EXTRA CREDIT - EXTRA CHALLENGES - EXTRA FUN activities.
All of these activities have been created using Microsoft Office 2010 (Windows version), which is what the author currently uses. However, these activities can be easily modified for MS Word 2013, MS Publisher, and other publishing software. The author (who has taught publishing in several secondary schools) has experience in using Publisher and QuarkXPress with her own students, and she has used these same activities. All of Education Get Real's materials are copyright protected to protect the author's intellectual properties. However, it is relatively easy for desktop publishing students to make the adaptations when using these materials in the classroom with whatever software is provided.
The EXTRA CREDIT - EXTRA CHALLENGES - EXTRA FUN activities include:
->1: Student Honor Roll List (for their own school)
->2: Website Advertisement (for a shoe store)
->3: Cruise Line Tri-Fold Brochure
->4: Birth Announcement
->5: Book Sale Flyer (to benefit the school library fund)
->6: House Cleaning Service Flyer
->7: Antique Car Show Flyer
->8: 5 Birthday Cards for Friends & Family
->9: Beauty/Barber Shop Flyer
->10: Sport/Athletic Poster
->11: Anniversary Open House Invitation
->12: Desktop Publishing Center "Mailer"
