Product Description
This amusing media literacy lesson begins by challenging students to translate examples of the four methods of doublespeak into common English. After decoding multiple examples of each form of doublespeak, students turn their attention to popular press coverage to find real examples of the techniques. This portion of the lesson can be used as an in-class assignment or as a homework assignment. Finally, students develop their own doublespeak terms and compete for the prestigious Emperor of Doublespeak Award. The lesson is fully editable to allow adaptation according to grade level and the media literacy focus in your classroom.
