I thought this was awesome. I really liked the suggestion to have a discussion about past vacations and travel brochure examples. That is probably a great way to get students thinking critically about how they would want to make a brochure.

It was hard to get my students to understand this without this site.But now they got it in a click,once I showed the web site they said thank you for letting us see it clearly.They were happy they got it and it was fun for them to do so I am happy with this activity.

I love this activity,because it helped motivate 6th grade class as well as give them an opportunity to create authentic types of writing. We used the online printing press to create a travel brochure. I used this in my social studies class to integrate writing and it also tied in with the theme for our "Read Across America" celebration. I will be using this activity again and again because it is so wonderful!

I used to teach my students in both grade four and five how to make a travel brochure in an ordinary way according to the book(scott foresman ) but after I read your activities,I totally changed my way and I'm proud of the results. Thanks for your great help.I WISH YOU'LL ADD MORE IN THE FIELD OF READING.
