Written assignment for interpersonal comm: Identity
This is a brief written assignment that I would offer students as an option to help them appreciate how groups work to create and communicate their identities.
This could be modified to require students to take photos of the ads or it could be made into an assignment for a brief class presentation or group activity.
Find three different examples of ads or announcements presented by groups on campus. These can be found in the school newspapers, in posters or fliers, or in sidewalk chalk messages. Briefly describe the group that created the ad and where you found it. Review the ad and describe how the language and symbols used help to define the group’s identity and to target their desired audience.
