I'm Sold! Virtual Field Trip
Presented by: Planet Word
We use language to convince others to pay attention, buy a product, and even change their beliefs. In this approximately 40-minute interactive virtual workshop, a Planet Word educator will guide your students through five advertising copywriting techniques that make ads memorable and persuasive. The program will finish with students writing their own ad copy, while discussion will highlight the idea of being a savvy consumer. The “I’m Sold!” Virtual Field Trip simulates the in-person experience of one of Planet Word’s groundbreaking galleries.
