PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Persuasive Writing Unit Grade 6 Common Core

Creating Public Service Announcement Commercials

Public service announcements are often used to help the public become aware of social issues, or to help promote the ideas and agendas of non-profit organizations.

In this unit students will select a charitable organization that supports a cause that they believe in passionately. Each student will create a written script for a public service announcement commercial and publish it using Photo Story. The goal is to persuade the rest of their classmates to donate money to their chosen organization. (Another option is to use iMovie or have students video tape their PSA commercials with flip cameras or other video recording devices.)

Provide a large transparent jar for the students to bring in loose change to donate money throughout the unit. At the conclusion of this unit of study, one charity will be voted to receive the money.
