Create two ads for the
same product. Each ad must target a different audience AND use a different persuasive technique. You may create
your ad by hand or on the computer (if you are able to print it). [In other words, choose a product (Cheerios, M&Ms,
etc. Create a drawing for the product. Then decide how to sell the product to different audiences: children, adults,
men, women, etc. Choose the two audiences you want. Choose a different persuasive technique to use, as discussed
in class. If you don't have your handout, Google "propaganda techniques in advertising." Then create the ads targeting
two different audiences.]
Memorize and recite
to the class Robert Frost's poem:
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
(by Robert Frost 1923)
[Yes, he also wrote "The Road Not Taken" that we read in Unit I.]
