Pop Culture and You

Do you know why you are motivated to purchase something?  Are you interested in how pop cultures influences your opinions?  During this elective students will research consumerism, product placement in movies, and learn how the Internet has changed pop culture.  Students will also study how media effects our emotions by looking at old and current movie clips, commercials, and ad campaigns.  Some activities will include researching changes in pop culture and presenting this information to classmate using power point presentation and engaging in dynamic group discussions.  One of our project highlights includes making time capsules with predictions about the future.
