Tech Friday


Today's Task

Today you will be creating a Smore flyer for your Tech Friday task. As a group you must create an account, choose a design and template, and then add information about your fiction book and topic and other books that relate to your topic. Your goal is to create a digital advertisement for your book, potential books, and your overall topic. Think back to your discussion map/note taking guide for inspiration. Make sure you reference your topic in a creative way. Exactly what you include is up to you, but it should be a variety of text, pictures, and video. Think of it as an advertisement that will entice other people to explore your topic. When you are finished, each of you needs to post the flyer to your blog. Just like last time, embedding the flyer is better than posting the link.


Book Information : Include your fiction book and other books that may entice people to research your topic.

Picking what to share on your flyer

Make sure you include different sections of text from the different components of your discussion map. Major categories to choose from: summary, characterization, setting, conflicts and quotes from the book. You don't have to include a lot of writing, just enough to pique someone's interest.


Finding related videos

Search youtube for videos that are related to your book or topic and share them on your flyer!

F.I.O. Figure it out! Work collaboratively with your group to figure out problems and finish your smore flyer by the end of the period. Show Mrs. Johal your completed blog post when you finish.
