This lesson aims to develop students’ understanding of the ways in which the media influences society’s values and people’s perceptions of their world. The teacher has structured a varied learning sequence to ensure students develop a deep understanding of core concepts by building on knowledge and understanding acquired previously and by relating content to the students’ own life experiences. Through the study of a number of media texts, students contribute actively to group discussions and compare and evaluate responses to ideas and issues.
