“Frank makes it easy for us (educators) to use Super Bowl ads as tools for deeper thinking about media messages.”

The annual Super Bowl game is one of the last appointment TV events: we still gather around the television at the time the game is played. For weeks before the big game, the media has been abuzz about the commercials. This website is designed to help you incorporate these ads into instruction, no matter what you teach.
