Is there PBL potential and academic content in this commercial from Nestlé?
By replacing one sugared beverage a day with [a bottle of water], you can cut 50,000 calories a year from [your] diet.
The fine print in the ad says that this is based on replacing one 12 oz 140 calorie sugared beverage daily with water for a year.
Where could a discussion of this ad take us in class? What questions will learners ask? What questions will we ask our learners? What questions might be asked to challenge learners apply what they know? What questions might be asked to promote problem-finding, problem-solving, communication, leadership, initiative, action, service, and other critical competencies?
Ask; don’t tell. Listen and learn. Just ask a question…see where it takes us.
