Good morning, everyone!

We are the translators from the Group T8T, Paz and Isa.
This week we have been working in an amazing and interesting topic. It was textbooks and the attitude of the teachers about it. We had to choose an option to represent it and explain it to the rest of the class. The one we had chosen was advertisement.

Here we leave you five concepts about this topic. We hope it will be useful for you and you can know and learn more about it.
there are many ways in order to define comics.
Will Eisner defines comics as a sequential art. 
Scott McCloud defines comics as juxtaposed pictorial and other images in deliberate sequence with the objective of convey information and produce an aesthetic response in the viewer.

An ideology is a set of conscious and unconscious ideas that constitute one's goals, expectations, and actions. An ideology is a comprehensive vision, a way of looking at things as in several philosophical tendencies, or a set of ideas proposed by the dominant class of a society to all members of this society. Ideologies are systems of abstract thought applied to public matters and thus make this concept central to politics. Implicitly every political or economic tendency entails an ideology whether or not it is propounded as an explicit system of thought. It is very related to the topic of textbooks because, every text book has political influences. It doesn’t exist any neutral textbook.

See you soon,

The translators.
