The trainers asks that what the participants think about the magazine. Participants are divided into groups. A magazine is given to the each group. Groups look at the magazine then trainer asks;

  • What did take your attention?
  • What are the basic features of creating a magazine?
  • What is the most important thing while designing a magazine?
  • Do you have an idea that how these magazine are designed?

The trainer and the groups discuss these questions and the trainer asks; Would you like to design your own magazine?
It is expected to get the answer “yes”. Then the trainer asks “Do you know how to design your own magazine?” and “Which steps should you follow?”.
While getting the answers, the trainer distributes written and non-sequential papers that are about the phases to create a magazine. Every group has 5 minutes to discuss and put those papers in order. Then the groups tell their answers and say their reason that why they put in that order.
