Reflection: Trust and Respect Advertising Analysis Day 1 - Section 2: Work Stations- Print Ads


In providing the students with the video advertisements, I am able to see their progress and efforts comparatively with one another. I am also able to ensure they have see the full variety and perspective that I am wanting for them to. In that, they are being forced to really apply these concepts and stretch themselves during the process.

I give them the opportunity to select print ads for themselves, from those I have already narrowed it down to, because I want them to feel valued, appreciated, and trusted as well. They are not ready to be making all of their own decisions yet, but they must be trusted to make some. This is an area that I can allow for this with, while still being able to oversee the process and help to ensure success. It is important for me to be flexible with them because I felt my teachers so rarely did that for my peers and I as I was growing up. I always felt that we could have been more engaged or taken more away from classroom activities if only we had some opportunity to make decisions on our own behalf. I never want my former students to feel that I made them feel the way I did as a kid.

I also see a greater level of concern and effort when the kids are looking at the ads they selected for themselves, and this is what it's all about anyway.

The final benefit that influenced me making this particular decision is that selecting their own four print ads allows them to differentiate for themselves as well as helping them to remain on time. This happens because the students typically work much faster and more efficiently when it is an ad that appeals to them more.
