  1. Advertising Errors?
    • Read the article about Subaru’s ad at TeachingKidsNews.com.
    • As a class, discuss the writing/discussion prompt at the bottom of the article.
    • Look at the reading prompt.  It states that the article was written from a neutral point of view (doesn’t choose a side).  Use Google Docs or Open Office Writer to rewrite the article as it were written from the perspective of a truck driver or from someone who wrote the ad for Subaru Canada.
  2. If you finish, you can do the following:
    • Write a blog post on your personal blog that predicts what you think will happen to Melody in regard to the trivia challenge team and how that will help/hurt her.
    • Read quietly
    • Finish your Attawapiskat blog posting from the weekend.
