The Living Room Candidate

I came across this nifty little site yesterday, and I thought I would share.  The site has presidential campaign commercials from 1952 through 2004.  It also includes  lesson plans that can be downloaded, textual information about the campaigns and results maps.

I tagged the site for the history department’s Delicious site but also thought it would be useful in Language Arts classes to display persuasive techniques, as writing/journal prompts, and discussions/debates about how campaigns have evolved over the years.

I am sure there are applications in other disciplines as well.  How could you use this site in your classroom?  I would love to know.
