The focus of this lesson is to provide reading material and strategies for idea development for an analytical essay. The topic is on consumerism and the readings will be based on two articles: “Psychological Factors” and “The Black Box” of Consumer Behavior.” Students will also be asked to select an advertisement of a product that they regularly buy for themselves. The class discussion of the readings and images will foster a community of idea sharing which will translate well as supporting points in response to the writing prompt which will be given to students for their next essay assignment.
