This is a “commerical” that I put together as an example for a media literacy unit for the AVID class that I work in. The students then wrote and put together their own commercials, which were really well done. Unfortunately, I cannot put them up. The commercial takes place in the 1950’s, and plays off of the commercialism, communist fears, and all-American stereotypes that represent the decade. Many thanks to my lovely wife for playing the role of the mom, and many thanks to her cousin Jamie for playing the role of Susie. Hope we did okay!
