Why would I be showing you this?

#4). We will go through a Coca-a-Cola Taste test activity!
Let’s begin by discussing a few things…

Taste and TEST:

Communication is closely tied to culture. Although we are not always aware of it, the mass media have a very strong influence in our lives. They present images of the world’s problems, of the latest environmental disaster, of the most recent news events, and of the must-have products promoted by advertisers. These images also portray particular lifestyles and encourage us to develop expectations for ourselves and those around us.
Learning Targets:
I can define mass media.
I can identify 10 different forms of media influences.
I can graph and interpret data.
I can understand how the media influences my likes/dislikes.
I can understand how the media impacts what I think about certain topics.
I can understand how the media can ‘change the way people think’.

What is mass media?
Use the padlet and respond.

Do name brands matter?
