FUNCTIONAL DOCUMENT PROJECTS
PROJECT #1: MAY 17- MAY 31: PRODUCT MANUAL
You will create an instructional manual to be packaged with a brand new product that YOU design. Your manual must contain all of the items as discussed in class and presented in the project worksheet. There will be exemplar work in the classroom for your review...but you may not copy their text or images to use in your own project.
You will have one week to complete this portion of the project. The manual is due Wednesday June 8.
You will create an advertising poster to promote your new product. Your poster must contain all of the items as discussed in class with this project AND from your memory, referencing persuasive language and images from our persuasive/argumentative unit. The poster is due Thursday June 9.
Both items MUST be in full color - that means multiple colors. How many? Well...a basic box of crayons contains 8 colors. So, there you go.
Project sheets will be posted below - select the buttons to download the information to your own computer.
This is an in-class project. You will have at least one full class period every day between now and the due date to work on this project in class.
The OUTLINE page on the document below lists the items I will expect to see inside your manual. In addition, your manual is required to have two illustrations of your product, both in color: The first would go on the cover of your manual. The second is the "product diagram" we've discussed several times in class. A illustration of your product with various parts labeled - buttons, knobs, switches, etc. Examples of those can be seen in the exemplar manuals that are in the classroom.
