Whether reading the Great Gatsby or learning about the Civil War or animal kingdoms, this fun and exciting project has students work in small groups to create a commercial for a product, event, or show. Prior to working on their own, students learn about advertising techniques, view and analyze commercials, create a storyboard, and then film their very own commercial! Depending on the time you have, students can even create the plot for a show that the commercial will be advertising! The grading rubric has a link for a student example. The PowerPoint, grading rubric, storyboard directions, and basic guidelines are included. If you need help going beyond the scope of the guidelines provided, just let me know!
