Personal Marketing Brochures

Lakeview's 6th graders are just finishing up their personal marketing brochures. Their brochures are marketing some type of service that they are either currently qualified to offer, or a service they believe they may be qualified to provide when they are adults. For example, some students teach various musical instruments, sports skills, or particular hobbies, such as skateboarding or origami, while others provide services such as babysitting, lawn mowing, or snow shoveling. They have learned how to use the templates provided by Microsoft Publisher, as well as many other features of the program. In the process, we have spent a great deal of time discussing smart searching and how search engines, such as Google and Altavista, help us find what we need online IF we take advantage of our smart searching skills. Ask your child to tell you at least one new thing they learned about their topic and one new website they found, as a result of their research.
