|Keywords: Romanticism, Literature, Hudson River School|
|Investigative Question or Issue: What were the distinctive characteristics of Romanticism that influenced American art and literature between 1800 and 1870?|
The intent of this challenge is to provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of the Romantic period in American art and literature in a persuasive way. Students will need access to research materials and multiple examples of art and literature from this period. Students will also want to discuss the attributes of a quality advertisement as they engage this challenge.
Your team of two or three is an advertising agency that has been commissioned to develop a TV sales campaign to sell American art and literature of the Romantic period. You have been asked to create a TV commercial no longer than 4 minutes in length that is designed to sell two pieces of literature from two different genres or authors and one painting from the Romantic period. The painting should be from the Hudson River School. Your audience will be a group of potential buyers (fellow students with coupons to spend) who are interested in the Romantic period. They will gather at breakfast to see your commercial and make their purchases.
It is very important that your advertisment and the information it contains about the Romantic period be of the highest quality. To that end, please consider the following as you design your commercial:
Be creative in the design of your commercial; do not hesititate you use props or costumes to enhance the quality of your work.Finally, be sure that all group members do their fair share of the work and contribute to the commercial itself.
You will have class time to prepare, but you must also work outside of class. We will discuss the time parameters for this project in class.
