TU FUI EGO ERIS
This week, students began working on the "English through Advertising" project. This project is an introduction to our unit on persuasive and argumentative writing. The project consists of inventing a product, writing up a marketing proposal for that product, and creating an advertisement for the product.
We began by viewing advertisements and analyzing the emotionally-focused methods of persuasion used in an advertising.
We then watched clips of the show "Shark Tank" to gain an understanding of the ways in which new and innovative products are pitched to investors. This will help in the "written marketing proposal" portion of the assignment.
The homework from this week is to work on the different pieces of this project. All portions of the project will be due on 2/10.
The project packet is attached below.
