Planning the Brochure
Use a piece of your own notebook paper and turn it sideways. You are going to fold it into thirds by folding first the right side over and then the left. Now decide where you will place the information on the brochure. Remember, you need to include your advertising slogan, pictures, important information, and color. The notebook paper used to plan the brochure will be turned in as evidence of your group’s work and planning skills – take it seriously! When you have finished sketching, begin working on your actual brochure. You may either draw/write the brochure by hand or create one on the Ipad. You brochure will be graded as follows:
Slogan – 1 point
Picture – 1 point
Creativity – 1 point
Information – 1 point
Industrial Revolution Project: Marketing an Invention/Innovation
Congratulations! Your group has just been hired by an inventor to help him bring his new invention/innovation to market. Your job has two parts. First, you need to become an expert on the invention/innovation-find out how it works, what it’s for, and how it’s made. Second, you need to figure out how to help your client turn his idea into a profit making business. For that you must identify potential buyers and would-be investors. Below is a list of inventions/innovations. Your group should choose one.
