The Media

Västra skolan, Falun · Senast uppdaterad: 31 augusti 2021

The Media, what it is and how it affects us.

"The Media"

The media is all around us. Constantly. Wherever we turn, we see pictures, read news and other types of information, as well as watch videos, TV shows and films. Is this a good thing? Are we affected by it? It is important to reflect on these things in order to be able to be critical and not automatically fall for everything that you see or read, whether it is filtered/photoshopped pictures, ideas and preconceptions about people in society, news etc.

During this unit we will focus mostly on the ability to speak, but the other abilities will also play a part in different assignments. We will read texts in Wings Red, watch videos, write a bit and, of course, discuss.
