My best teaching day happened a while ago because I became a tech guy. We did an analysis of rhetorical devices used in various Apple commercials and it was really neat to see what the kids selected and the kinds of things they noticed. They were analyzing the music, images, sounds, etc. The level of sophistication in their analysis was really impressive, and it was neat to see them independently applying skills we had practiced. Even more cool was that we had never worked with videos, so they were adapting their analysis to fit the new media context.
