Possible Activities 
  1. Give students a mini-lesson on the infographic submission sites and how they are evaluated, including: an overview of the qualities that increase website traffic, reputable sites, free sites versus those that charge a fee, and what the general public believes about sites you have to pay to post on. 

  2. Using a “scavenger hunt”-style exercise, have students look for infographics that are similar to theirs to find sites they may want to post on. 

  3. Give students a mini-lesson on how to increase traffic when posting online by creating a catchy headline, creating a headline that has common search terms and key terms, or scheduling tweets, blogs, and other promotions to increase traffic. 

  4. Have students write a reflection describing where they will post, why they chose a particular site, and what they will do to increase traffic to their infographic.
