Dear Ms. Maggie,

In this Summer, a very popular challenge has showed up from the whole world. It is the “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge”. The activity is to promote the disease “ALS”.

ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) is a disease which causes the patient’s nervous system’s becomes weak and affects physical movements. Which generates the feeling of cold chills, thats why the Ice Bucket Challenge was promoted.

The challenge was about pouring a bucket of ice water on to your body, once you did that, you must donate to the charity and also nominate your friends.

The “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge” started and got popular when 🍎Apple Executives and other celebrities did it.

Many people in the world had accepted this challenge, but many of them did not know the actual meaning. Many people who had accepted this challenge did not donate. Which looses the purpose of this challenge.

I 🍎personally did not take this challenge, it is because no one nominated me and I wasn’t really interested.

As mentioned, many popular people completed this challenge, I decided to post links below this.

Persuasive Videos: Advertisements

14 Mar

Dear Grade 7 Students,

As you know, we have been writing persuasive essays. You have been writing with the intent of persuading the reader to understand and agree with your point of view.

The art of persuasion is BIG business and companies create persuasive videos as a way to persuade the observer to either buy their product or to change their behaviour. Check out this video: The Majestic Plastic Bag

Here, the makers of the video are not trying to persuade you to buy anything but rather they want to make the observer to be more aware of littering.

Here is a classical advertisement that uses humour to persuade the observer to purchase their product (a scratch-card, similar to Hong Kong’s Mark 6).

Your role is to reply in the comments with a GREAT advertisement and state why you find it persuasive (does it really want to make you buy their product or change your thoughts/actions?)

Please keep the videos appropriate to the topic and you are allowed to post a maximum of TWO video links each.

We look forward to reading your comments.

The Grade 7 English Teachers.
