Product Description
This assignment with background was developed for a visit to the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin, but it can very easily be tweaked for any visit to an "emotionally charged" site, such as a war memorial, or really for any museum. Consider it a sort of deconstruction of the experience. Students read a brief discussion of the role of museums as a mediated experience, then are asked to analyze one exhibit or location in the museum to define how the exhibit affects the visitor.

Not so easy to categorize! English (persuasive devices; museum as text); media literacy; visual and graphic arts and design; sociology...

Additionally I have included an activity in which the student analyzes a website in the same manner; this document probably needs a few tweaks to make it work for you, such as adding your own web resources. IT was intended for those who missed the field trip.

I hope to add more specific lists of learning objectives and such to make this a more standard lesson plan, but all the elements are here for an enriching experience for students.

Also file under "media literacy" and "information literacy."
