Project: Travel Article Description: Travel Article (100 points): Think informative, descriptive (illustrate), and entertaining. Focus is on research, categorizing information, organizing information, compare and contrast structure, and writing for your audience. The topics for this are limited to three choices. Imagine you are writing a travel article for a magazine such as “National Geographic TRAVEL” or “Conde Nast.” Better yet, read "The Beginners Guide to Venice: The City of Love" by award winning travel writer Dawn Jorgensen to get a feel for what a travel article should sound like. Your article needs to be well researched and appeal to your readers. How to do this? Your tone needs to be friendly but at the same time show you are knowledgeable on your topic. Every step of the way, you need to maintain the readers’ interest. Every step of the way, you need to address your readers’ concerns. Think AUDIENCE. Applying the techniques and methods of successful writers: recognizing your audience needs/knowledge level, strong organization, well placed details and supporting info and creating an “angle” for you piece will assure you reach your target audience and keep them interested. Directions: Begin: View the travel videos provided to get an overview idea of your two target destinations. Take notes as you watch. Chicago: Minneapolis: Then, choose who your target audience is from the following: 1- Singles 2- Young couples 3- Families with children 4- Seniors Afterwards, create an audience analysis for yourself answering the following: 1- Who is my audience? (Think age, income, education, experience with travel and the target destinations and its activities.) 2- What concerns would they have? (Cost? Physical demands? Safety level? Transportation? Etc.) 3- What are their expectations of me, the writer? (Level of knowledge, accuracy of information, tone, scope of info, etc.) Next, based on your audience analysis, decide what topics you need to do further research on to meet your audience expectations. (Examples of what is meant by “topics” and further research: more detail of night life destinations, local culture, transportation options, costs for entry, etc.) After researching your chosen topic, write a 3 page travel article that includes three photos in the following two sizes: • 1 photo 6.5” x 2” (this size works well for a skyline or beach scape) • 2 photos 2.5” x 3” Apply compare and contrast appropriately within your article. This requires you to choose ahead of time whether you are organizing the main part of the article subject by subject or topic by topic. Also, following the guidelines in your text, apply appropriate signal words and phrases when comparing and contrasting. Just as Dawn Jorgensen did in her travel article, create paragraph breaks that indicate a shift in focus. Use font and layout to draw emphasis to key words and ideas. Font and layout play a big role in written communication. Project Requirements 1. 3 pages minimum, 1.5 spacing with an article title 2. Include 3 photos, one 6.5” x 2.0”, two 2.0” x 3.5” 3. Model the tone after the travel writing article example provided 4. Create a list of sources at the end of your article NOTE: APA is NOT required. However, always list author last name first, be consistent in how you set up the source info, and always list sources in alphabetical order. ...

Chicago is a city in the region of great lakes in the state of Illinois that started as a small trading
center at the mouth of the Chicago River. The town has since developed to be one of the world’s
commercial and cultural center. Despite the wind, you are going to love swaying with the
buildings. Yes, you got it right. Chicago boasts of some of the most spectacular works of
architecture designed to withstand the effect of strong winds. We would expect that though
since Chicago is home to the Chicago School of Architecture.
You probably know about the great Chicago fire that razed down almost the whole city in 1871.
The city has been driven with resilience, and optimism like no other as the fire only provided
it with a chance to reinvent itself into the modern city it is with some of the most beautiful
cloud-piercing skyscrapers. It is home to some world’s first high risers to the world’s tallest
towers of today (Five Star Travel Corp. 2011). Take for example the Willis tower that held the
title for world’s tallest building for 25 years.
The city is endorsed with some of the best outdoor sculptures and a historic theatre district that
gives it a mixed feeling of a museum and a film center. Further north is the Chicago school of
architecture that holds some more wonders the city owns. At the center is the old water tower
that stands isolated in the midst of modern civilization but proud of more vibrant history. The
old water tower is the only survivor of the great Chicago fire (Sandweiss, E. 2008).
