After addressing the discussion questions, students will go on-line to the suggested sites and experiment with different kinds of slogans. They will then choose from one of the ad thumbnails, take a screen shot, transfer the shot to Power Point and write their own slogan for the ad. (They may use sounds or music in Power point).

Conclusion

Every day we are bombarded with advertisements. As critical thinkers, we need to be aware of the subtle ways ads enter our consciousness and the subtle ways we are affected in what we purchase and even what we believe. The many forms of media are used in various ways to influence our decisions.

After completing this WebQuest, you should be better able to evaluate when and where someone is attempting to influence your decisions. Instead of being brainwashed by the media, you now have the skills to make sensible decisions about what you purchase and what you believe.
