Happy Halloween! I am thinking about developing a fully blended class next year. I think it would be a great chance to implement more project based learning in all of my classes. I saw this idea for an ESL class about developing your own pizza and creating a commercial for it. I think that it could be developed into a project for a food unit.
My question would be: “How can I develop a new twist on a traditional Hispanic food and market it?” Students would then have to decide on a traditional Hispanic dish, and create a new version of the dish. Once they created their new dish, they would have to create an advertising campaign for it. They would have to create a logo. Then they could make a commercial, advertisement, or social media campaign etc.
I was reading an article about soda companies in Mexico, and I found some social media that students could reference:
Gugar Soda: Twitter, Website, Facebook or Commercial
For those PBL experts, is this a good start??
