I tried this with my ESL class. We were doing a thematic unit on Healthy Eating. I found several 30 to 60 second Public Service Announcements and I used a similar model to have the class work in groups to create their own. I especially like the idea of having them choose their roles first, and then dividing them into groups. It helps get everyone have a chance to be involved at their level of interest and learning style. Thanks for the materials you made up!!!!
