Students were exposed to five examples of the First Person section published in the Mercury weekly and asked to plan a page of their own. Here is a sample of one of the First Person articles and a student's finished text. Students can bring clothes along to dress up in and ask a friend to take a photo to go alongside their finished text about themselves. They will learn about laying out a page and can use the program of their choice to achieve the effect they desire. I look forward to reading them and finding out more about my students; especially after hearing about their early morning starts to the day. We focused on text layout, elaborating on ideas, and the use of the ellipsis in some texts.
