This lesson is the final day in the exploration of the 5 Concepts of Media Literacy. Today explores media for profit (product placement) and media to persuade (media bias). This is a trickier lesson, so if you are working with younger students, you may need to supplement with additional vocabulary, examples, background info, etc. and split the lesson into two days. The end of the lesson includes news stories from various media outlets that allow students to view the media bias in action.
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.
