Television Commercial

Type of strategy: CollaborationMovementOpeners & Get to Know YouRole-Play, Drama, Charades

Simulations and "role plays increase meaning, are highly motivating, and facilitate transfer of knowledge," (Wolfe 2001). Teams create a commercial to display knowledge.

Directions: 

Participants work in groups to write and present an impromptu television commercial regarding information learned in class. The goal of the commercial is to persuade the audience to purchase a service or buy the information presented. After several minutes of rehearsal, each team presents its commercial.

 

Adaptation:

For larger groups and fewer concepts. In subgroups of 3-4, plan a television commercial for the topic you have received.  Subgroups will then meet to present to each other and vote which one to show the whole group.
