Objective: create an infographic displaying information about Your Adversity
Now that you have done all of your research on your adversity, it’s time to show us what you learned. Using the Adobe Spark Post app, you will create an infographic that reveals a visual argument by presenting your research from your Unit 2 argumentative graphic organizer.
What is an infographic?
An infographic is a visual representation of information. Infographics help you communicate a complex idea- simply and quickly. They often are visually-stimulating and catch the attention of their viewers.
Which do you prefer? Why?
More Infographic Examples
Things to consider:
- VISUAL LAYOUT: How will you make this visually appealing to your audience? What makes the most sense to express your ideas?
- SIZE: Consider the sizes of the font, shapes, and icons. What do you want the viewer to notice? How would you show importance of the adversity and claim compared to the other components?
- MOOD: What is the mood of your work? What colors or color theme (2-3 colors) can be used to portray this? What emotions do you want the audience to feel?
- TEXT FEATURES: How will you use font, heading, icons, captions, bold/italic print, and/or maps to express your argument?
Your InfoGraphic Must Include:
- Turn IN your argumentative organizer (after you have finished your presentation)
- TITLE + YOUR NAME
- BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF YOUR TOPIC: Try to "paint a picture" of what happened during your event. This is the "who, what, when, where, why?" portion of your project.
- CLAIM: This should be DIRECTLY stated in you rinfographic
- REASON AND EVIDENCE: Include reasons and accompanying pieces of evidence to support your claim. Your evidence should be SPECIFIC facts, statistics, numbers, direct quotes, etc. Think about how you can portray this in words and visually. Give credit to your source following the statement. (Ex: “You are stronger than you think!” - Mrs. Flintz)
- ANALYSIS: This can be portrayed using words and/or visuals. Be creative!
- COUNTERCLAIM + REFUTATION: We will be voicing this poriton of the project using Puppet Pals, Explain Everything or Adobe Spark Video. You will submit this part separately since it cannot be attached to your infographic.
- STRONG FINAL POINT: Can you think of a way to include this visually in your infographic? I hope so!
- SUBMIT YOUR NOODLE TOOLS BIBLIOGRAPHY to Schoology SEPARATE from your project.
