Wings red - The Media -
Grundskola 8 Engelska
The media is all around us. How does it affect us? We will read texts about about the media, as well as watch videos concerning different aspects of it and think about how it influences us.


Why the Media?

Different media are 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 this? 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.


During this unit you will read different kinds of texts, as well as practise your listening, writing and speaking skills. Certain lessons everyone will be working on the same assignment, and other lessons there will be different tasks to choose from.
