Media literacy is so important in today’s day and age. With social media being such a big part of our lives, it’s important to teach kids how to distinguish between facts and fiction, and how to use media in a positive way.
This Media Literacy: Fact, Opinion, or Misrepresentation lesson plan is the perfect way to do just that. Students will learn about the different media outlets that touch their lives daily. They’ll learn that they can’t trust everything they see or read online. And they’ll learn how to use media positively. By the end of the lesson, students will be able to explain how the media helps them understand a specific topic.
