LEARNING GOAL
In this unit, the end project will be to make an EBook using Adobe InDesign CS5. However, along the way, you will be learning other valuable skills. Those include: How to do a Boolean search. The purpose for a thumbnail sketch and how to prepare a thumbnail sketch. Interesting facts about a decade in our history and the impact on society How to use contrast to your advantage. How to use white/negative space. How to use the colors of the color wheel to make pleasing combinations. How to use different features in Adobe InDesign CS5.

Your instructor will tell you when to use the different document contained in this packet.

You have been instructed on how to do a Boolean search using the Boolean operators of AND, OR and NOT. You have been assigned a decade to research using these operators. In the ten spaces below, write ten words that are applicable to your decade. When the instructor directs you to do so, join your assigned group to make a Wordle puzzle on one computer. Make sure your group does the Wordle puzzle and turns it in with all your names on it. You will receive credit!

Your assignment is to go through the magazines provided and find examples of the following: Contrast White/Negative Space Complementary Colors Analogous Colors You are to cut out the examples and paste them on the pages in this packet in the appropriate place. You will note that the next four pages have headings of “Contrast,” “White/Negative Space,” “Complementary Colors,” and “Analogous Colors.” The rubric below shows how many examples you need of each to receive the desired number of points. Please circle the examples so that the instructor knows to what you are referring.

You are to design a ten-page EBook. The EBook will be done as an Adobe InDesign CS5 document and then exported to a format that will support EBooks. Your EBook will contain information on one decade between 1940 and 1990. You will do a Boolean search on a decade of your choice, ensuring that you cover the following topics: 1. How was this generation defined? For example, the 1920’s were defined as the “Roaring 1920’s while the 1990’s was defined as the “electronic age.” 2. Facts about the decade, including average salary, minimum wage, life expectancy, and other interesting facts the student finds. 3. Popular authors and songwriters 4. Political climate—including who were the United States Presidents 5. Fashion—hair styles, clothing styles 6. Historic Events and People In addition, somewhere in the book, you must show at least example of Contrast, one example of Negative/White Space, and one example of Analogous Colors OR Complementary Colors. When you have completed your EBook in InDesign, you will export in following the directions below: 1. Click on the File menu and then click Export. 2. Give the file a name and indicate a file format. The file format needs to be Flash Player (SWF). 3. When you click Save, another dialog box will appear, where you need to make sure All Pages and Generate HTML File is marked. 4. At this point, you will have a URL address for your EBook. 5. Email the URL address to me at the email address I have given you. You will be graded based on the rubric on the next page.
