Here’s our first blog response assignment in Media Literacy grade 6 students.
On Friday October 14th of this week we’ll be examining television commercials. In particular, we’ll be viewing a series of Stouffer’s ads with the catch phrase, “Nothing Comes Closer to Home“.
Your assignment is to produce a written response to these ads which analyzes the commercials for bias, apparent or hidden messages, loaded words, emotional factors, or propaganda techniques.
Don’t worry if you do not know what these terms mean yet, we’ll be studying them in class.
We’ll write our responses in the computer lab an then we’ll post the responses as comments to this blog post.
