This is a unit of inquiry made up of 12 learning sequences for year 7 in the English for the Australian Curriculum resource. Each learning sequence contains a series of resources, suggested activities to carry out with students and a post-activity reflection. Students focus on using critical literacy skills to explore consumer culture and the world of advertising. The unit will develop the students' understanding of the specific persuasive devices commonly used in print, television and online advertising. The students will use critical literacy strategies to inquire into both the obvious and the ambiguous messages behind advertising. They will undertake critical and creative work, including speaking and listening activities.
