  14. 14. GiggleIT Project 2010 & Year 7 National Identity Unit Year 7 SOSE/English Name: _________________________ Chosen Topic: _________________________ Unit: The Aussie Identity Assessment: Research task & informative brochure Draft Due: Thursday 19th March Research booklet & brochure due: Friday 27th March Objective: To develop an understanding of what makes Australia unique by investigating significant icons, places and people. Task: You have been selected to represent Australia on an international exchange student program. You are required to present an informative brochure on a ‘slice of Australia’ to your host family. During class and home time, research a topic and create a brochure displaying your information. a) Research: You must submit evidence of the research process. Use the orange books provided. These will be handed in and marked. When you have found a book with relevant information, open up your research booklet and put all the bibliographical details onto the bibliographical planning sheet. Then, at the top of the first page in your booklet, write the name of the book that you are using, its author and today’s date. Then start reading and taking notes. Remember that these must be neat, in your own words and in dot point format only. Repeat this process for every book (or source) that you use. b) Brochure: Create a brochure displaying your researched information. It needs to include text and pictures. Because it doesn’t tell the whole ‘story’, it should contain the most important parts of the ‘story’, and be attractive and appealing so that the reader is motivated to find out more. The brochure’s audience needs to be clearly identified and targeted. ( See separate sheet – Genre Writing: Constructing a brochure) This item will also form part of your ICT assessment.
