This is my intro activity meant to:
- Give students a working definition of Mass Communication and Text
- Allow students to create a simple piece of work that reflects the texts that represent them, to be posted in the room at the start of the year
- Obtain a formative writing assessment from all students in the classroom
Included in the zip file is the presentation and the assignment itself as well as an example I created. This is an interesting way to get to know your students and the text they see as definitive of themselves. It is also an effective way to solicit one quality piece of work from each student that can be posted on the wall at the beginning of the year.
