Create your own original PSA

For this assignment, you will create your own original PSA. A public service announcement (PSA) informs us about something important, and the purpose of a PSA is to benefit the public by raising awareness about an issue or topic.

This unit has been about love, so this assignment will involve the same.  What issue are you especially passionate about and would love to see change?  What issue would you be willing to devote your life to out of great depths of love?

First, choose your topic.

Second, research your topic.

Third, create your PSA slide.

Fourth, compose the paragraph.

Fifth, create the works cited slide for all sources used.

Your PSA flyer should:

  • Include a “hook” that grabs the viewer’s attention.
  • Use font and color choices wisely and purposefully.  For example, bold font can emphasize key points.
  • Fit on a single PowerPoint slide.
  • Be in Microsoft PowerPoint or PDF file format and not hand drawn/created.  If you do not have Microsoft PowerPoint, download the free OpenOffice software here: https://www.openoffice.org/
  • Contain 1 related image and at least 1 credible source for information.
  • Have no mechanical errors.
  • Sources credited in MLA format.  Use the CRAAP Tool  to evaluate source credibility.

Slide 1 of your document will contain the PSA with the image(s) and sufficient text depth and detail.
