Essential Question: What “advertising techniques” are used in non-print and print ads?

Clarification: After class I thought about our discussion. I miss- spoke in regard to the model from which MLK  framed the beginning of his famous speech. It was the Gettysburg Address rather than the Emancipation Proclamation that was the model for "Five score years age...." . As the Lincoln speech begins "Four Score and Seven Years Ago...".

1. Quiz: Using notes, handouts, and our discussion. Answer the following question in four complete sentences:
What makes Martin Luther King’s I Have a Dream speech an effective argument?

2. In groups of three, you will be examining non-print and print advertisements. Complete the following:
Check as you complete:
______Go to your vocabulary section  of your notebook. 
______Put the terms below and definitions  you create in your own words in your notebook. A triple entry vocabulary journal template can be found on the reverse of this handout for you to use. Only write the word and definition for now. Finish at your convenience  This is for use for studying and accomplishing class work (5-7 minutes).
______Look at one of the non print ads below. Look over the print advertisements made available.
______Answer Part 1 in writing in your Springboard text (pg.69)
______Answer Part 2 in writing in your Springboard text (not the writing prompt) (pg.69-70)
______Read Part 3. Do Part 3 and create a three-minute dramatization that uses two or more advertising appeals. This should attempt to sell one common object you have now in class with you (a pen, backpack, bottle of water etc.).
______Share this at the beginning of next class.
