Project Published 4/24/13 Last updated on 8/10/18

Whew. Worked on this for a long time. There is so much that is involved in Infographics! If you haven't checked out the professional development for Infographics, do it - it is really great:

So this is a unit that I designed to introduce students to infographics, the different styles, how to choose the right visual vehicle, and ultimately the task of developing an infographic on the world population of stray dogs. Included in the .zip file is: A 6-page student information packet with steps, tips, diagram, rubric, etc. And a 3-page unit-planning guide. Both are in interactive .pdf format with lots of hyperlinks, and also in InDesign .idml format so that you can revise and customize to fit your needs.

Please - I need your feedback. A project plan is never finished - with your help I will revise it and add to it to create something that will really inspire and invigorate students!

Also, I have a self-guided Infographics tour on my class website - check it out and tell me what you think:

The answer to the problem is to add .zip to the end of the file and then unzip. I am going to add the four zipped files and hope that works.

Sorry about the link. I am searching to find the materials, but with the number of hard drives that I have lost, it might be lost forever. Hold on, I am furiously looking to find the stuff! I hope my Dropbox has it, or else it is lost forever....

​Hi Judy! Your link is still not working. This sounds like a good lesson plan. I'd like to look it over. Will you be fixing it?

​Hello, Judy!

I was trying to access your resource file but am unable to do so. I see that it's been since 2013 since you last updated this teaching material. I you are still active with this. Please respond.

Hi Judy,

It looks like the link to the Adobe resource is not working, nor is the link to your Infographics tour. I was hoping to check out both. By the way, your website, is an awesome resource. Students are fortunate to have such a dynamic, knowledgeable instructor. Do you build and maintain the site on your own, on top of teaching?

Anyways, I'm downloading your zip file and excited to see what you've developed.
