Student activities

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.
