Child Soldier Awareness Campaign
- Students will research topics surrounding child soldiers as they read Beah's memoir A Long Way Gone. Students will then create an ad campaign to spread awareness of the topic.
Research Paper: Completed individually. Minimum of 2 sources, parenthetical documentation, and Works Cited page. See outline for further instructions.
Two PowerPoint Slides: Completed with a partner-SAVE AS A PDF
A) The 1st slide: E-poster connected child soldier topic- Your E-poster should contain an image from a copyright-friendly site. This image should take up the entire slide. In addition, your E-poster should contain text to bring awareness to your topic in a powerful and meaningful manner.
B) The 2nd slide: Analysis of your choices- The next slide needs to include a paragraph description of the choices made in the ad. Clearly defend your choice of image and text and what you hope your audience will gain by viewing the E-poster.
