Title: Critical Viewing: Cigarette Ads

Students will analyze four different cigarette ads to understand the meaning of critical viewing and active viewing. They have an opportunity to study the elements— in this case, an advertisement for tobacco, and consider a series of questions, each designed to elicit important clues and information.
