Political Ad Storyboarding Lesson

Over the last few weeks the class had watched a number of political TV ads for specific ballot propositions, both pro and con. Their assignment was to now break up into small groups and create a storyboard for their own 30-second political ad. Each group was instructed to: 1) select one of the 17 ballot propositions we had studied (no Prop 60); 2) decide on a position – either pro or con; 3) using the facts they’ve learned about the propositions, construct an argument which supports their chosen position; and 4) create a storyboard for their political ad that made a convincing, compelling, and evidence-based argument either for against their chose proposition.
