									                                              Africa Travel Brochure Instructions

A brochure is a small pamphlet used to advertise key information about something. Tourism brochures are used to
highlight important information about specific places of interest (such as a vacation spot). When you read a tourism
brochure, you can find out a lot about the place without actually going there.

Goal: You will randomly pick a country in Africa to send me and a guest to. Make sure you plan to keep me entertained
on my vacation and you provide a lot of detailed information for me to read before my trip.

Resources: Internet (google), textbook and the class website (www.mswassonsclass.com)

Steps for Starting your Brochure:
  1. Open Microsoft Publisher.
  2. Click on Brochures (under publication types)
  3. Choose one of the styles listed under INFORMATIONAL BROCHURES
        (You may pick your color scheme, company information, etc. Make sure your name is on it)
  4. Save Your Brochure (do this many times during class so you do not lose your work)
