BookBox: A book for every child in his/her language BookBox is a social enterprise that innovated the concept of "AniBooks" or animated books to support emergent literacy and language skills.

 

AniBooks flow from a simple fact -- children love to watch cartoons. Thus, AniBooks are animated stories for children, with the narration appearing on-screen as Same Language Subtitles (SLS).

 

In our conception a "book" is a reading experience that can travel in print and other audio-visual media. Our aim is to provide an online portal where children have fun and subconsciously improve their reading skills. The FREE BookBox App for the iPad is out!

The best and worst commercials of the 2013 Super Bowl | Brainfriendly motivating comprehension resources for ESL EFL learners | Scoop.it

 

 THE BEST:

 

Which advertiser won the laughs and viewers in between the action on the field? Watch the 6 Super Bowl’s best commercials this year below.

 

Example:

 

Taco Bell: When some octogenarians bust out of their retirement home, they get into all kinds of teenage trouble: Regrettable tattoos, public displays of affection, breaking and entering, pyrotechnics, and finally, some late night Taco Bell. The directors found some great character actors ..........

 

THE WORST

 

These advertisers lost big, ticking off viewers with sexist or unfunny commercials. Watch the 9 worst commercials of this year’s Super Bowl below. ...

 

Example: 

 

Go Daddy: This commercial objectifies women and makes fun of unattractive people. Just another day at the Go Daddy marketing headquarters! As spokesperson Danica Patrick explains,........

Aulde de Barbuat's insight:

 

Very graphic videos that will motivate most students.  Good material for analysing marketing policies, strategies & decode the language & methods of commercials and advertising in general. The reviews may help develop critical thinking. Students may contribute by posting comments agreeing or disagreeing with the WP 's analysis & use the further ads below to continue the reflection.
