This lesson introduces students to how the media constructs messages using camera angles, sound effects, music, lighting, etc. Students contrast different images and videos and discuss the messages they gain from each. Students also talk about the values presented in movies and TV and how they do not always represent everyone's values. The lesson ends with students presenting the differences between their values and the values shown in an advertisement for "Good Luck, Charlie."
My lessons include an interactive PowerPoint with instructional notes for the teacher in the "notes" section of the PPT. It also includes a complete and printable classwork packet for students in .docx form. Classwork includes a Do Now and Exit Ticket.
