In this artifact I created a 2 page newsletter using Microsoft Publisher. The newsletter is on brain development and learning problems in the classroom. When creating my newsletter, I used many suggestions from the Perception Principle. Regarding the text, I used an 11 pt font for my body size and 15 pt font for my headings so that it would appear smooth and legible. The font I used was a non-proportional font because it is used columns of letters such as the ones in a newsletter. The fonts that I used in my newsletter were New Century and Palatino, which are types of preferred fonts. In between each one of my paragraphs I put white space to distinguish between each paragraph and my paragraphs are left justified because it is the most common way. For the colors, I used a high contrast hue combination of black on white and green on white. My pictures in the newsletter were added to enhance the effectiveness of the information and contribute to learning. The pictures in the newsletter pertained to the information in the newsletter. I also used rules or horizontal lines for chunking the content and subdividing the screen into segments to make it easier to read and understand.
