Advertising is everywhere! The average one-hour television show now has 18 minutes of advertising. Corporations spend millions of dollars on TV, radio, newspaper, magazine, Internet and even video game ads. Millions more are spent on hiring advertising professionals. According to Occupational Outlook, the median income for advertising and promotions managers in 2006 was $98,720 per year. These advertising professionals spend years in college studying marketing, consumer behavior, market research, sales, communication methods, technology, and visual arts. By time they graduate, they are well trained to write convincing advertisements!

With all this media aimed at selling products and services that people may or may not need, parents and teachers require resources to teach children to understand the media, how media affects them, and how to recognize the persuasive power of the media.

Teacher Created Materials has just released a teaching resource called, Media Literacy. This mini-course covers the major forms of media, how media affects people, persuasive techniques of media, and propaganda. It provides students a brief overview of advertising in print, radio, television, magazines, billboards, music, video games, product placement, packaging, newspapers, art, and Web sites. Worksheets direct the student to examine the advertising method and then answer questions.

For instance, in Media Literacy, Grade 5, a magazine ad is featured. After studying the ad, students answer questions that relate to the type and purpose of ad, media tricks, and hidden messages.

If you're looking for an educational product that will help you teach your students media literacy, I recommend that you check this one out.
