I had some fun with the options on my cheap digital camera this week. I noticed that on many photo programs
there are magazine templates available with some of these cameras with such titles as BOSS,FORTUNE, ADVENTURER, etc.
so I copied these and brought them into my class.
printed them off. Here is the recipe:
Print blank templates of magazines from digital camera
Tell them to choose one and think of how they would appear on the magazine cover and what their story would be
Break them into pair groups or groups of three
Have one of the students conduct an interview of the other student
Have the student's write the interviews they conducted (If you have them word process these it's best)
Take pictures of the students
Using the templates place the student's picture in the magazine cover template and print on a color printer
Have the students read the interviews to each other
Skills used : Conversation, writing, vocabulary building
Interst level : high!
Result : This activity was very popular with the student's and have shared the magazine
articles with their friends and family outside of school.
World's Best Jobs!
