Many people think that the commercials are the best part of the Super Bowl. Advertisers pay top dollar for 30 second spots during the game. But such a big platform is accompanied by big drama.
“I Only Watch the Commercials” highlights seven Super Bowl commercials that brought the wrong kind of national attention to companies. These 7 commercials were all followed by lawsuits being filed or threatened.
This download includes an 82 slide Power Point that features 7 infamous Super Bowl commercials. Each commercial is accompanied by 2 page student worksheets. Students will watch and analyze the advertisement. They will then determine who should win the case by following the DRAAW+C framework used by lawyers to organize their thinking.
Students love Super Bowl commercials and students love drama. Use that to foster the development of critical thinking!
