Quick summary: Students will consider what a slogan is, as well as how a slogan can be eye-catching and influence people to take sustainable action. They will explore some existing slogans, then work in groups to choose a specific action they would like people to take and brainstorm their own slogan. Students will view and practice lettering techniques, then design a poster that features their slogan in an eye-catching way. Students will reflect on the effectiveness of their poster and review their classmates’ posters.
