  • Discuss some of the critical issues that may arise from the following areas:
  • Children and advertising
  • Advertising in schools
  • Health and advertising
  • Political advertising
  • Find one example of a commercial that strikes you as particularly creative and appealing:
  • What are the elements that are unusual?
  • What is the target group of the commercial?
  • How does the commercial appeal to consumers?
  • Why do you believe this commercial to be effective in brand name recognition?
  • How are ethical standards met (or pushed to their limits)?

Include detailed speaker notes and images that support your content. Each slide should have 3 to 4 bullets of text which are a high-level overview of what’s included in your speaker notes. You may write the speaker notes in the notes section of your selected presentation tool or in a separate Word document.
