Open the Google Slides file we used yesterday. We will focus on the ads not chosen in yesterday’s activity.
As a group, work through the VAPID strategy to analyze one ad. Be as complete as possible, with the understanding that not every question will apply to every ad.
Individually, choose one ad to analyze with the VAPID strategy. Please complete your work in Classroom. When referencing your ad, use the slide number from the original slide show.

Next skill set for assessment, which will be during exams, 26-28 January.
1. Providing and supporting text evidence
2. Identifying bias in non-fiction text
3. Identifying author’s tone in non-fiction text
4. Writing a summary of main idea and supporting details
Today we will be focusing on bias. Here is a short video about finding bias. First, write down a definition of bias. Then, write and briefly explain the four things used to evaluate a text.
Now, take a few minutes to look through the text on your table. Notice the cover art, the words on the cover and any inner title pages, the chapter titles, any images in the text and any other feature you see. Share your findings with a neighbor.
With that same partner, choose a short section (~1 page) to read. Find the main idea of that passage and 2 supporting details.
Exit ticket- What do you think the author’s bias will be in this text? Please include the title of the text you read.

Get materials. You will need 2 iPads, one piece of paper divided into 4 boxes, and colors (optional).
Go to Classroom and open the Google Slides titled Ads for Analysis. Choose one ad to work with. Each pair should choose a different ad, so choose quickly and let me know what number you picked.
Open the pdf titled Deconstructing an Ad. In each of your 4 boxes, go through the 4 steps and answer the questions about your ad. Both partners’ ideas should be represented on your paper.
