This is an English resource that engages students with their visit to Blackgang Chine. The resource task enables them to practise their performance skills, designing a new western-themed advert for a product of their choice, whilst incorporating scenes shot at Cowboy Town (these will be edited back at school).
Students will need to complete scripts and practise their advert prior to arrival at Cowboy Town in order to ensure that the work can be completed on site.
This resource will require the conventions of television advertising
to be studied prior to the visit and students will have practised their performance before arriving at the destination. The advert they will be performing/filming will be inspired by the spaghetti western advert for a well-known white chocolate product.
At school, teachers can also ask students to complete a persuasive letter writing task to encourage an adult to perform in their advert. They may also be asked to write a new song or jingle to support
their new western-inspired advert. They will have to amend
certain elements of the original advert so that their final outcome
is achievable on site. Students/teachers can choose the number of characters involved in the re-interpretation (as they may want to add in extras). The scene will also require students to record the scene on cameras/mobile devices. They can then edit back at school.
