Media in Your Classroom Discussion


think of examples of how you use media in your classroom. Think of documents you use, videos that you show, pictures, news articles, textbooks, etc.

Now that you thought of what media you use in your classroom, answer this: How much do you actually know about each piece of media that you use. Pick one of the examples that you wrote down, that you think you know the most about and without looking it up, answer the following questions:

Who created this message and what is the purpose?

What techniques does it use to attract and hold attention?

What lifestyles, values, and points of view does it depict?

How might different people or cultures interpret this message?

What is omitted or left out?
