Reflection: Shared Expectations Blended Genre: Creating a Commercial (Day 1 of 2) - Section 3: Writing the commercial


I created this assignment with some other teachers and we quickly discovered that a one-minute commercial is way too long as we watched students filling the time requirement with nonsense.  We shortened the expectation to be a 20-30 second commercial and it went much better.  

Additionally, I stopped class and we watched a few commercials and talked about the informative, narrative and argumentative aspects of them.  The Cheerios commercials were particularly good as examples.
