Now bring your own example of an advertisement to school.

It must have both words and pictures.

Paste the advertisement in your module below.

Point out the different aspects of the advertisement by labelling them.

The purpose of an advertisement is to convince the person reading it, to buy the product. In the process of convincing people to buy their products, some advertisers sometimes distort the truth.

Consumers need to distinguish between FACT and OPINION in advertisements.

Let us look at the following:

  • A fact is something that cannot be changed e.g. A dog has four legs.
  • An opinion is something that is one person’s view only. E.g. That painting is beautiful. (Another person may disagree.)

Which of the following are fact and which are opinion :

  1. Mrs White has moved in next door.
  2. She has lovely furniture.

3. Her three dogs are big.

4. They are very playful.

5. She has many children.

6. I shall invite her to tea.

7. I am a good neighbour.
