This project is designed as a year-long (or semester) project with monthly due dates (students write in the due dates). The hand-out is 28 pages (11x17) and set-up to be printed as a magazine and saddle stitched. It can also be printed as letter-sized pages.
The assignment focuses on what is important in magazine design:
- creating a dummy
- project management and much more
Students must produce all aspects of the magazine (articles, advertisements, editorial) themselves.
I primarily used with juniors and seniors in my career education program, but it could easily be used for higher ed or adult education. Additionally, I often teamed with the English Department to integrate the writing portion into their writing classes/grade.
