      I recently taught intertextuality to my year nine english class. Students worked in groups to analyse advertisements which incorporate intertextuality, with each group having one ad to analyse. I initially asked students to write questions using Bloom's levels of questioning to initiate thinking about the ad and intertextuality; e.g. Identify the target audience for the obvious text and the hidden text, Compare the character in each text, Discuss the message of the ad, etc. students can then go about answering the questions in groups. Students can then use this information to write their own analysis essay of intertextuality in an image, either by analysing the same image done in the group or a different one.
