Today we will take a look at the big picture and then break it down step by step again. The big picture tells us we have 8 school days left before Night of the Notables.
The step by step picture tells us if we have stayed on track, it's an easy downhill slide from here on out. The hard work is done!
One of the many things we will talk about today is the display board.
1. Size - The display board must be a trifold board. It should be a minimum of 36 x 48 inches. Smaller boards will not have enough room for everything required. Students are encouraged to reuse boards from previous projects.
2. Border - All boards must have a border. This border should represent the notable character in images. For example, a writer might use a pattern of pencils and books. Other border ideas include quotes or photos. The border should be high contrast and add meaning to the experience.
3. Center Panel - The center panel includes the notable character's name in large, high contrast letters. They should be at least 4 inches tall. Under the name is the black and white sketch which was completed in art class. It should be backed on a high contrast piece of paper. Below that, along the bottom edge is the time line. This may go on as is or can be backed with another piece of paper for contrast.
4. Left Panel - The left panel will hold 4 trivia questions. These will be done in class so that they are formatted correctly.
5. Right Panel - This is the area for them to go wild. There is nothing official that has to be on the right panel, it is where they put other information, images, etc that they feel would enhance the presentation.
