Media Literacy Activities
Questions to think about and discuss in your teacher groups:
We are inundated with media messages daily. How well are we preparing our students to understand and react to these messages?
How do we help our students know that what they see and hear in the media usually isn’t real?
What about when it is real – like war coverage?
How do we combat the persistent use of violence, weapons, and aggressive behavior as depicted in the media as the way to solve problems?
What stereotypes, prejudices, and beliefs about other people and places do our students acquire from the media? How do we find out what they are and how do we counteract them?
Here are some TPN activities to try.
