Product Description
Engage your students in critical thinking about both the role of the media and moral behavior of elected officials. In this lesson, students define the concept of a "feeding frenzy," or attack journalism, and evaluate when it is justified for the press to report on scandals or the personal information of elected officials. Four cases are presented for students to reflect on in respect to whether or not the behavior/scandal should be reported; lesson includes a teacher handout explaining what the true story is behind each case and how the media handled the story. A closing activity allows students to imagine they are a news editor and to create their own criteria for what should and should not be reported.
