The clips below include SEVEN video clips that I have compiled.
**WARNING** One makes a reference to safe sex (clip 6 or 7). Not for the younger audience. I find the high school students are fine with it; make your own judgment calls.
This is always a great way to help students understand how media persuades us. Watch each video and determine the techniques that the commercials use to persuade viewers to buy their products and/ or services. While this is great for a laugh, it gets you engaged and interested in how media persuades. I find that this is a great opener for reluctant students and can work as afun pathway to a discussion/ lesson on visual and written modes of persuasion. Have fun!
