Before or after you teach a unit that focuses on the American Dream, this is a must. Some version of this assignment. Mine or yours. Collage or just words.
This one includes an original poem that I wrote along with the students, though the collage is missing somewhere. Imagery from newspapers and magazines are so perfect because that's what the advertisers depict in those mediums.
It's a simple assignment you could come up with on your own. Go ahead. If you want a good example and how I did the assignment for a year, download the document.
Great for vocabulary practice in World Language, too. Interesting to see if you're homeschooling.
