I'm Assigned To Watch TV?? Best. Class. Ever.

Here's what you're going to do:

  • Watch 30 minutes of television - your choice of network shows
  • Using a laptop, tablet, paper, etc write down every product you see advertised
  • Choose one of those ads and, in 2-3 sentences, explain why the ad is terrific, or why it's awful
That's it!
