What makes a commercial engaging?

In this project, you will watch a variety of commercials with the goal of discovering what makes them engaging. Why (or why not) are they effective? In this project, you will make a Google Slide show with each of your ten slides showing 2 things: The commercial itself and a written explanation of why you feel the commercial is engaging. I have made two short instructional videos below for you. The first video shows you how to step up your slide making game - giving you some tips and tricks to make your slides more visually appealing. The second video goes into detail about how to do the project. As always, reach out to me with any Questions or needs.

This project is now up in Google classroom. Just to give you a head's up. Later in the year, whether in the classroom or online, we will be doing a project (together with your other classes) that focuses on the subject of creating Public Service Annoucements. Part of this study will be learning how to create persuasive messages and how people are influenced by them (for good or bad). I included links to several Youtube sites that show lots of commercials. I recommend you explore on your own as well.
