Nike published their Kaepernick ad this week (see WOW, WHAT A NIKE VIDEO WITH COLIN KAEPERNICK), and I think that one would be good for Intermediate and Advanced ELLs to watch and write about (after they’re given some background knowledge).

I’m using it in my Long Term ELL class, also, as we do a jigsaw on major issues in the U.S. today.

Nike also published this Spanish-language ad celebrating Mexicanas (the version below has English subtitles), and I think it could certainly be used with any English-proficient level student, especially those who are Spanish-speaking, to write and talk about it in English.
