This bundle of lesson materials contains the first unit to my Media Literacy curriculum. It contains five days of lessons meant to introduce students to the ideas of Media Literacy, including the messages, values, biases, and tricks. Students will gain familiarity with the media by analyzing short video clips, authentic advertisements, and commercials. They will have class discussions, create their own advertisements, and reflect through journals.
Each day contains an interactive PowerPoint with instructions for the teacher in the notes section of the PPT. It also contains classwork in .docx form that can be easily altered and printed.
