Here we go! The 2020 edition of the Noël Commercial Madness! This edition contains 8 commercials with activities to make each commercial comprehensible such as readings, image sequence, writing activity, graphic novels (comic strips), transcripts, matching, and more. It has links to Kahoot games, Gimkit, Quizlet, TeachVid activities, Blooket games, screenshot slideshows, and a few links/images to dig further.
There is a link to a Google Drive folder that contains all of the activities, bulletin board materials, downloaded commercials, screenshots, and the 2020 bracket. The Google doc has links to Blooket games, Gimkit, Quizlet, Edpuzzle, TeachVid activities, screenshot slideshows, and a few links to dig further.
For virtual and hybrid teaching situations, I have created several virtual activities for each commercial than can be used asynchronously. I also put all of the activities, links, screenshots, and commercials in a Google slideshow.
This includes commercials from Coop Suisse, Migros, Orange, DisneyLand Paris, Intermarché, Amazon, Bouygues Telecom, and IGA. Here is the Youtube playlist.
Make sure you click on the Google doc link for the latest version including recent edits and link corrections.
I recommend printing the Google doc version to have clearer images.
Be sure to share your results on Twitter using the hashtag #NoëlMadness.
You are welcome to create additional resources. If you create any additional activities, slideshows, resources for any of these commercials, please share them with me on Twitter @williamson_ci or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add them to my website post and Google folder.
Here is a link to all of the Noël Madness posts including a brief overview of how I do it.
I hope you and your students enjoy the madness!
