Discussion Activity for Visual Literacy

This exercise asks students to respond to two videos, sharing with their classmates what feelings and ideas the images and music evoke in them.  The first video is an ExxonMobil commercial and the other is a humorous critique of advertising stock footage.  Be warned that the critique does contain one mild swear word.

I have also found this presentation to be useful in discussing among fellow faculty the importance of information literacy and used it as part of my presentation on Information Literacy Assessment at the 21st Illinois Community College Assessment Fair.
