General Zaroff Brochure:
You are General Zaroff. Create a brochure to persuade people to come to Ship-Trap Island. Of course you don’t want readers to know what you really plan to do with them! How might you pass off your island as a tourist attraction? You might include some inside jokes: “Ship Trap Island... To Die For!” Use images and language that are appropriate for General Zaroff. Consider details of setting carefully when you choose images and “attractions” for your brochure. Fold an 11”x17” piece of paper into a tri-fold brochure. Use all six sides and include substantial text, not just pictures (this is a writing assignment). Tell your potential audience what you have to offer and why they should come.
