Slogan/Jingle Challenge

Slogan/Jingle Challenge

There are so many company slogans out there, but the best advertising slogans are the ones that truly bring out the very reason a brand exists. As a class discuss how the best advertising slogans determined? What makes an advertising slogan average, good, or the best? Best advertising slogans are the ones that truly describe what a brand, or a company, stands for in the shortest way possible; something that sticks to the consumers mind and helps the product to stand out. I've compiled a list and made a challenge to see how many brand slogans we can identify.

British Newspapers Wordsearch Starter Activity English Journalism Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

British Newspapers Wordsearch Starter Activity English Journalism Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'British Newspapers'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
