Students will split into groups and each be assigned a faction from the novel Divergent. They will create both a poster and a 30-second ad promoting their faction and slamming another. The must draw on their knowledge from the novel to make sure their portal of the factions is true to the book.
Students must use at least one logical fallacy and at least one rhetorical appeal in both the print ad and 30 second commercial script. I had students perform their commercial scripts for the class- you could also turn it into a video project and have them film their commercials.
Attached is my student handout with the rubric. I also included a example of what the print ad should look like to help inspire students.
I used this assignment as a quiz grade over logical fallacies and rhetorical appeals.
