Now that you have made a chart to track your media use for 5 days… take a look at it.
What do you notice?
What stands out?
What has the greatest influence on you?
Write five or more sentences describing how you consume media. Which media do you prefer?
Why? Do you think you are different than the majority of students in the room? Explain?
Summarize your thoughts in a well-structured paragraph that answers the question,
“How do the media shape the world around us”?
(Please publish this on a WORDPRESS page.)
2) YOUR OPINION (Select A/B/C or D)
A. Select one text/area from your media profile. Collect and organize visuals that express your opinion as to whether it is a GOOD THING, or whether it can be seen in a negative light.

B. Create a rant to share your opinions about media consumption in your society.
(You can write this or record yourself. Again- place it on your WORDPRESS.

What do you have in common? What is different? What do you think needs to change? What is influencing you the most?
The create a message about one of the ideas or issues raised in discussion. Develop ideas for two different designs for the same message, aimed at TWO different audiences. For example, you might plan a message about safe Internet use for teachers and then one for teens. Write and explain the motto you would have for each design, what your images would look like and how you would inform the audiences. Then organize on your WORDPRESS.
D. Your media profile is all words and numbers. Feel free to take all of your data and represent it either on paper or a GLOG.
-draw pictures, words, images, symbols that represent how you think the media consumes you.
If you draw a picture, take a picture of your visual and place it on your WORDPRESS.
