Political Pamphlet

We have to create a pamphlet for our political party using “Canva”. We need to think about layout, and readability.  We need to include at least two policies, information about our leadership and participants. We need to include our slogan and logo.

✓ Name of party
✓ ID leaders
✓ Slogan
  • Deliberate use of colour
✓ Photo of party participants
✓ Clear to read and see
  • No overlap (Layout) It over laps into the other columns
✓ Logo
  • Contact Details
✓ Policies x2  

When I compared my pamphlet to a real political party pamphlet I got 7/10 for my political pamphlet. Next time I need to think about
  • Deliberate use of colour
  • Layout
  • Contact Details

We will have met the success criteria when we

  • Use a spreadsheet to record our tally / frequency data.
  • Correctly develop a graph or chart using a spreadsheet programme. (Google Sheets)

Final graph
The pages with the most articles are page 13 to 14. The pages with the latest articles wore pages 3 to 4. This shows that pages 13 to 14 are most likely to be looked at longer than all the other pages and pages 3 to 4 are less likely to be looked at for longer. Why does Pg 3 and 4 have less articles than pg 13 and 14?
