DESKTOP PUBLISHING PARTS 1-2-3 MAJOR PROJECT: "Assessing DTP Basic Skills" - is the assessment tool DTP teachers need for the first 15 activities that students complete. Students will be working in teams of three to complete the project tasks - a good exercise in teamwork for students since that is what business requires of their employees. Student teams are asked to create a new school club, determine a "theme" for the month, schedule three club activities, and complete nine tasks (three per person). The teacher determines the timeline according to their school scheduling system and the standards they wish to address.
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.
A FREE suggested timeline/lesson plan is available here on our website which may be of help to you when implementing these activities.
The tasks that students will complete in this assessment piece include:
->1: Club Organizational Chart
->2: Club Letterhead and a Logo
->3: Calendar of Monthly Events
->4: Letter to the School Principal
->5: Advertisement for the School Newspaper
->6: Flyer Advertising an Events
->7: Invitation to Faculty Members
->8: Tickets with Stubs for an Event
->9: Form with a Table
->In addition: Each package also includes Teacher Instructions for the major project, a Project Rubric needed to evaluate the teams, and a Daily Record Sheet to record each students daily progress on the project. The Project Rubric automatically calculates the student grades since they include formulas that do the work for you. These items are all copyrighted and therefore protected.
