Several large photos, cardboard or tagboard, overhead projector, large chart paper, markers, overhead transparencies
Prior to beginning this activity, the facilitator should have several large photos cut out of magazines that depict Hip-Hop or popular culture stars, jewelry, cars, CD covers, fashion, etc. or assign students to bring in their own images.
The facilitator should begin this activity by:
Displaying the pictures where everyone can see them and then asking the participants to individually reflect and write about what they see and how those images make them feel. What are they being persuaded to think or want?
Facilitator Tip: If your participants are more comfortable giving their answers orally instead of writing them individually, this may easily be done. Just be sure that you are capturing what they are saying on chart paper or an overhead.
The facilitator should conclude this activity with the following:
Use the following quote, "And, the same thing happens on a smaller scale to everybody, not just artists," and ask participants to write out or discuss their reactions to the statement.
