What is it

What is it?

In this unit, students complete an in-depth study and analysis of a magazine. The finished product consists of two main parts:

  • Magazine Profile: Student read at least three issues of the magazine they’ve chosen; they then study, describe, and analyze the magazine, based on such features as articles, advertisements, and table of contents.

  • Exercise in Style: Students write an article appropriate for the magazine they’ve chosen AND an appropriate visual, such as an ad, a cartoon, or cover.

    We assign other, less formal assignments along the way, in order to study voice and style.


Why should you adopt this project

Why should you adopt this project?

  • It’s highly adaptable and can be used with students of all skill levels, from English Language Learners to gifted writers.

  • It can be implemented in courses that focus on writing, as well as in literature units, interdisciplinary courses, media studies courses, and ELL classrooms.

  • While our focus is on the development of voice and style in writing, you might also use Magazine Project to focus on critical reading skills, cultural studies, or gender and class issues.
