1. Explain the lesson.

Today you will be creating an advertisement.

2. Explain the Advertisement Poster.

You will use this poster to create your ad. First you will begin with a catchy title for your product. Next you will state a positive opinion about the product. Then you will give two reasons to support it. Make sure to use descriptive words to make your reasons more convincing. Last you will add a picture to catch the reader’s attention.

If students made a drawing during the Reintroduce: Advertisement lesson they can cut and paste it onto the poster.
