What technology, media or props did you use? (satellite tv, internet resources, playmobiles, etc.)

What worked well in this class? What did not work?
This activity worked very well. The students were very engaged talking about what they think of commercials and discussing among them whether the commercials where good or bad intended. Also, they share what their favorite advertisements on t. v. are. After that they also planed their own commercials and had so much fun acting them out for their partners.

How could this class be improved/ modified?
