American Life, stereotypes?
Just like television, commercial, etc.
When we are watching TV, it gives us a "snapshot" of American life. If you look at the commercials alone, what would this tell you about how we live? I ask you to pretend that you are from another country and don't know anything about American life except what you see on TV. What would you think we are like? Some ideas might be that we eat fast food a lot, we all drive new cars, we all live in fancy houses, and we take a lot of medicine - this is just from commercials!

  2. Do you watch TV commercials? (I don't.)

    How do commercials portray people? I suggest you jot down your impressions from 20 or so commercials.

    What picture do they show of Americans?
