Re: View Media Project for Grade 10 English
Images innundate us every day. They bombard us with messages. Some of which are helpful; some of which are not.
Images are on the walls at school, in stores, on buses, in magazines,on billboards, on TV and the internet.
We are forced to ignore or react to them. In either case, we make a choice.
In order to be wise consumers who are not easily manipulated by images, we need to develop strategies to uncover messages that may not immediately be obvious.
This project provides you with an opportunity to examine the persuasive power of print media and to create your own satirical ad about an issue that is important to you.
