Reflection: Homework Community Identity: What are Women's Roles and Responsibilities? - Section 1: Let's Get Started: Why do these women represent all women? Or do they?

 

So, my students really struggled with identifying the purpose of this commercial.  It may speak to the reason why bing.com has not caught on.  The students understood that the commercial highlighted the variety of ways women of all ages make both small, personal contributions to the world and can also make contributions that can potentially change the world.  However, they did not see how these women connected to bing.com.  

The class was able to identify the contributions of all but three of the women.  Several of my students came to conference (my school's name for tutoring time) that afternoon to look them up for extra credit.  As I watched them work on the extra credit, they were using google to look up the women.  I asked why they did not use bing.com instead of google.  Their response, "Didn't think about it."  If the point of the assignment was to work on purpose and connection to the audience, I would have taken the time during the next class to talk about the effectiveness of the commercial and its ability to connect with an audience.
