Answer Key

?_Geography Poster Promotion

 

There are 20 Quebec tourist regions; teachers may wish to assign one region to each student and then create a bulletin board in the classroom to display the finished products.

Ensure that students understand the meaning of the word "promote" and why giving away a free weekend package will benefit the resort owner. Emphasize to students that they should concentrate on the features of the resort and the recreational opportunities nearby. Remind them that not everyone wants to pursue "extreme" sports, and that their package should include a variety of indoor and outdoor activities! Students will have to "locate" their imaginary resort, so part of their research should focus on which activities are occurring in which parts of the province. Encourage students to organize the information on their brochure or postcard into information categories, and to illustrate it with photos from the site.

You may wish to use or adapt the following criteria to evaluate student posters/brochures.

    • The student's map includes appropriate labels.
    • The poster/brochure includes all required elements.
    • The poster/brochure is attractive and eye-catching.
