Desktop Publishing Assignment for Sept. 5

Adapted from page 7 of your textbook:

Use research, writing, and design to put data in action by developing a simple, three sign infographic on one of the topics below. You should perform research on government, academic, or nonprofit websites to gain meaningful statistics on your topic…

Write a one-line description that clearly states what the statistic is about and who is affected by what it represents.

Next, find an image that explicitly makes meaning of who is affected in an iconic way (represents it) and an image that makes meaning in an indexical way (points to it).

Place the numbers and images together to create an infographic on Microsoft Word.

Send your final draft to Dr. Tindall via email.
