This lesson would occur within a unit on art in advertising.

First, the teacher goes over 7 propaganda techniques while showing examples from magazines.
Students apply this information by getting into groups of 4 to look for all of the techniques in various magazines.
Students share out their examples and explain why they chose the ad for the propaganda technique.

Then, student will brainstorm ideas for a product they would like to advertise in their advertisement. Students will turn in a list of product with correlating propaganda techniques.

The next day the students will share their ideas with their partners and begin sketching their best idea. The students will work individually to sketch up advertising ideas with the graphic tablet in order to gain real-world experience and enhance their technology skills.
Cross-Curriculum Ideas
