Task no. 1
Record a vlog
Discuss the following as a class:
- What surprised you the most about The Sydney Mail front covers?
- What did you learn about the media through these activities?
- Have your beliefs about the media changed after completing these tasks?
- How will you put your new understanding about media bias to use in the future?
Reflect on what you have learnt (in Activities 1 and 2) about media bias and the persuasive language and visual techniques used by the media to influence readers by recording a video log. Think about what you would like to say beforehand, but try not to read a script, instead talk naturally about what you have learnt.
