A: Our Compliments Cola
B: Name Brand Coca-Cola
C: Name Brand Pepsi
D: President’s Choice Cola
E: Our Compliments Cola

10 out of 20 identified the Name Brand Coca-Cola
That is the highest ever- but still only half could even tell the difference.
The question is;
WHY IS COCA-COLA arguably the most recognizable product on the planet?
(Rylie, Trev, Athena, Luquesha, Ash, Kevin, Jess, Kait H, Lando, Alexei)
MISS MANN FOR THE WIN… Maybe not so much.

Let’s talk about this mass media thing;
MASS MEDIA:
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’.

Let’s TALK about Catfish.
WOAH RIGHT!
The first time I watched this I went and deleted 300 friends off Facebook.
How did it make you feel?
Let’s review the questions together as a class.

Let’s REVIEW the following questions together.
Did Nev do anything wrong?
How did Nev get roped in the lies?
What could Nev have done to ensure he wasn’t lied to?
What is a positive thing about ‘online’ relationships?
What is a negative thing about ‘online’ relationships?
What is a stereotype about ‘online’ relationships?
Do you have people on your Facebook that could be questionable?
What does the term ‘catfish’ mean?

Miss Mann’s Thing to Think About:
What if you stopped looking at celebrities… feeling that they had it all… that you want to be them and you spent a week trying to avoid longing for what celebrities ‘have’?
What if you found some real people, doing real things and started to be empowered by them instead?

WATCH THIS:

I believe you are better than what the media tells you that you are.
