Over the course of a typical day, modern teens encounter ads on television, the Internet and radio as well as print advertisements on billboards or in magazines. In light of this environment, many schools and educators choose to include media literacy in their curriculum.

The students discuss the power of advertising through suggestion. The finished pieces range from persuasive arguments to parodies.
