Quick & Dirty fun student directed creation of web based commercials delivered via Connect

Lesson Plan Published 10/28/14 Last updated on 5/16/18

Students will collaborate in 3-4 member teams to create a commercial to market a new computer or smart device over the web. Connect is the delivery system to view the draft and final commercial versions, archive the commercials, and poll the effectiveness of the commercials. The lesson is an example of Project Based Learning and Universal Design for Learning. Mutual trust between students and the teacher is necessary as well as good teacher classroom management skills. This is a fun lesson for students and the teacher...Dan Blevins, AEL
