Product Description
This is a two part lesson and assessment meant to teach students how images are carefully selected in media to influence our perception of an event, extending to the larger concept of how content is selected in media which has a result of controlling what the population as a whole is focusing their attention on.

Included in the .zip file is a two part presentation detailing both concepts and a worksheet to assess student understanding which includes an embedded rubric and example. The only materials needed that are not included are magazines or digital images for students to analyze for the assessment component.

From the included teachers guide:
"Learning Objectives:
• Figure out how easy it is to change the message of a visual text by including or excluding portions of an image.
• Figure out how easy it is to change the message of a visual text by simply showing one brief moment in time, rather than what is going on before or after the picture was taken.
• Figure out how easy it is to change the message of a visual text by leaving out what is going on outside the area in the picture."
