Why we need media literacy

Your final graded blog posting of the semester revolves around why we, society, need media literacy. I am asking you to post a 500 to 600 word response to this theme on YOUR blog by 11:59 PM Wednesday, April 30th.

Here's what you need to know.

The title of your posting will be __________________: Why we need media literacy. You fill in the blank with your own title and then end with the subtitle I have provide above.

In your response, you want to make a case why we need media literacy. This is wide open for you with regard what focus you want to take...elementary students, middle school, high school, college...whatever.

As you write this make sure it is just not opinion. Support your ideas with examples and reasoning. Use sources other than your text book.

You have a case to make, so make it in a way that depends not on your opinion alone.

To put yourself in the right frame of mind you might like to assume again that you have been asked to write a column on this topic by the editor of an online magazine that your write for.

I look forward to reading your responses.
