In this lesson, students will gain a basic understanding of what a community health, safety and wellbeing campaign is and view a number of commercials from some well-known Australian campaigns. Students will relate their understanding to It’s People Like Us, the associated clip Nothing Short of Diabolical and the Towards Zero campaign, then evaluate the effectiveness of the campaign.
