Then do the following: 1) Sort the titles into two lists: (a) good or interesting titles and (b) bad or boring titles. 2) Pick the best title from the good list and the worst from the bad list. 3) Try to list some of the reasons why the best title is the best and why the worst is the worst. 4) What lesson(s) does this teach you about what works/doesn’t work when it comes to titles? -Prayin’ Hard for Better Dayz -Television’s Influence on Young People -The Outsourced Brain -Advertising and Body Image -Mike Myers: Man of Mystery -The Death Penalty -How to Speak Republican -Today’s Pop Music -Has Modern Life Killed the Semicolon? -Soccer: The Next Big Thing? -The Auteur of Anime -Prejudice -Online Monitoring: A Threat to Employee Privacy in the Wired Workplace -MTV -Defending Goliath: Hollywood and the Art of the Blockbuster
