Exercises
The exercises, aimed at training the student in practical work, are drawn from the professional field: inventing names, writing advertisements, conceiving claims, scripts for sequences of storyboards for realising a book as a copywriter. The exercises consist in reviewing advertisements, in writing copy strategies and in creating headlines, body copies and pay-offs for advertising campaigns. The assessment system of the basic knowledge of the advertising sector is based on the check of the learning progress reached thanks to the videolessons and the suggested texts; the assessment of the exercises, instead, reproduces the same system being used in the professional field. Solutions are judges according to clear criteria: consistency with the proposal with the set objectives, appropriateness to the target and how far the persuading/information aspect of the message can be considered good in professional terms.
