"Media Literacy explores the impact and influence of mass media and popular culture by examining texts such as advertisements, television shows, newspapers, and websites." (Ontario Curriculum Grades 1-8 Language 2006)
It is my goal to use the computer as a tool for teaching Media Literacy. This years students will:
1. Improve their language skills and learn various fun and exciting software through integrated assignments and activities;
2. Identify various media forms and discuss how they influence various people in our society;
3. Use a computer to create a variety of media texts for different purposes and audiences.
