Canada's Endangered Species

So what exactly is a Visual Essay?

If an essay was a diagram or picture, or a collection of picutres, what would it look like?


A visual essay uses visuals (drawing, sketches, photos, magazine excerpts, pictures etc.) combined with text to demonstrate understanding, insights, themes and the intent of the work.

The Task

Create a visual essay that outlines the information you collect by answering the assigned questions from the viewpoint of your organism. Your first task is to do your research by answering the questions - you will need to answer ALL the questions to be prepared for the final exam; however, you will not be expected to include all the answers in your visual essay; nor is it necessary that they be included in the order asked. I have bolded the questions I think could easily be incorporated. How you organize the information is entirely up to you!

Requirements


  • Use SMORE to create your Canadian Endangered Species Visual Essay.


  • Include images, video, website links, news articles and words to accompany the images. The text should supplement the image not overpower it. Play with fonts/styles for greater impact.
