Product Description
I use this project in conjunction with my Satire and Satirical Devices PowerPoint. After reviewing the PowerPoint, students are assigned this project. Then, we move on to the reading of Mark Twain's "The Lowest Animal" to further delve into the genre of satire, I use this Satire Assessment as a summative assessment at the end of the unit. I find that introducing students to visual satire is a great way to front load written satire.

In this project, they must create a satirical advertisement that addresses a serious issue. The ad they create must include one or more of the following devices of satire: mockery, parody, hyperbole, understatement, verbal irony, or sarcasm.

The assignment includes a list of controversial topics that students can choose from to begin brainstorming ideas. An example and 6-point holistic rubric for easy grading is provided.
