This is a worksheet to go along with the SkyMall magazine found on airplanes.
The point is for students to see what some of the ridiculous items are, and the way that companies try to convince them that they're acutally worth buying.
The worksheet highlights the following propaganda techniques:
- broad generalization
- hidden messages
- loaded language
- bandwagon appeals
- faulty reasoning
Students must pick out six products and fill in the following information about them:
- name of product
- product description
- propaganda technique
- would you purchase it? why/why not?
- who would most likely buy this product?
Thanks for looking!
