digital poster on climate refugees



Important Notes

  • This assignment is worth 100 points.
  • All poster must contain the following elements:
  • the title of your poster (think in terms of what will make someone want to come and read your poster) and the author’s name.
  • Your objective for your topic (Why is the topic important? What impact could it have on our lives?)
  • Data that addresses the topic itself (What are the results of our research? What did you learn about the topic that you want to share with other people?)
  • Conclusion (What is the overall message? What do you want your audience to remember one week from when they read your poster?)
  • Reference list containing abbreviated bibliographies for all your sources.
  • Your message should be mainly visual.  Avoid lots of text and long paragraphs; use images, graphs, flow charts, and so on.  Be creative in your design to grab attention and communicate your message diagrammatically. All images must have captions that explain the graphic to the audience; otherwise, points will be deducted.
  • Make sure to read the grading rubric in Canvas and use it as a guide or checklist to make sure you meet all criteria to get maximum points.
  • The poster will be a specific size: 13″ x 19″, either landscape or portrait.  That choice is up to you.  I will make two templates available in the project folder in the form of PowerPoint files.  If you want to use them, you can upload them into PowerPoint, Google Slides, or Pages.  When saving the final file for the exhibition,  it should be in the form of an image file (JPEG, PNG) or a PDF.
