Reading the World Resource

In my demo, I mentioned the PBS/ Frontline Merchants of Cool. Gallaghers advice on helping students "read the world," specifically advertising reminded me of this documentary. It's usable, I think, grades 7-12, and you can view it online at http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/cool/view/.


Thanks for the resource Jen. I'll have to check it out too. We actually teach an advertising unit to 4th and 5th graders too. Is there anything negative for that age in the PBS piece??
