Main Curriculum Tie:
Background For Teachers:
I have taped a short segment of the news and commercials. We watch this as a class and discuss the communication styles used by the newscasters.
The students are divided into groups and come up with their own newscasts and two or three commercials. They write their own stories and choose what products to advertise. Sometimes the stories are silly, but I am often surprised at the serious nature of some.
The next class period they present their newscasts and commercials as I act as a camera person and record. As a class we watch the newscasts.
This activity is so much fun; the students really enjoy watching themselves and looking at their own communication styles.
