Faith Activities You do not have to be a professional counselor or experienced teacher to build meaningful relationships with youth; you just have to care about them. The following activities were designed for ordinary adults who work with ordinary youth. We encourage you to integrate into each session the principles, personalities and events of your tradition and the youth you serve. We hope you find the activities to be a refreshing starting point for your ongoing efforts to guide young people toward wise decisions and a healthy, drug-free life. Late Elementary School

Media Literacy In the modern world, much of who we are and what we think depends on the various media messages we receive. These carefully crafted messages have a documented impact on our perceptions and behaviors. As we learn more about the techniques of media manipulation, we can be certain to make responsible decisions as consumers and citizens.
Learning more about the media and how it affects us requires that we become more media literate. Media literacy is concerned with helping individuals develop an informed and critical understanding of the nature of mass media, the techniques used by media outlets, and the impact of these techniques. Developing media literacy can be likened to the scene in The Wizard of Oz when Toto pulls back the curtain to reveal the small, lever-pulling man behind the image of the mystical wizard. This is the point where Dorothy and her crew come to realize that the wizard is a carefully constructed fiction rather than some omnipotent force.
Like Toto, we too need to learn how to "pull back the curtains" to reveal the truth behind the countless media messages that we are exposed to on a daily, even hourly basis. By going beyond the surface of such messages, we begin to understand the implicit as well as explicit ideas that are conveyed. Such scrutiny enables us to become active processors rather than passive receptors of the glut of messages in our daily media diet. This critical awareness will better prepare us to deal with the complex issues facing modern society.

Media Literacy Review
Media Literacy Online Project - College of Education - University of Oregon - Eugene Media Alert! 200 Activities and Understanding Media: Create Media-Savvy Kids Author: Alla Blanca Note: I am reviewing two products at once because I feel like they each have strengths and weaknesses that complement each other. I would feel comfortable using these products together to teach media literacy. Media Alert! is a thin volume that is easy to access and read. Although it is subtitled "200 activities", I would caution that it is more like 50 concepts, with 4 activity clusters per concept, divided into age groups: preschool-1st; elementary; middle school; high school. The concepts deal with a wide variety of media literacy topics, and can be used in any order, to cover as much or as little as you want. The book is written simply, and is designed to be used by any adult with an audience of children: parents and teachers, but also scout leaders, ministers, youth group counselors, etc. I appreciate a resource that reaches beyond the standard medial lit. crowd to encompass a wider audience. The topics are easy to pick out by title alone, enabling you to quickly find just the topic you want. Within each topic and age grouping, there are several activities and discussion items, which could be covered in as little as one hour, or extended into a week-long lesson plan. Media Alert! has strengths in simplicity, flexibility and ease of use. Its drawbacks are in the depth of information available. Being designed for a mass audience, it doesn't offer much in content, just the ideas to get started. However, if you're looking for quick ideas in a highly accessible form, you can't go wrong starting your search with Media Alert!

WIINDMILL PRESS Publishing (Canadian publisher of media literacy books and resources)

The Ontario Ministry of Education's 1999 Grade 9 Curriculum lays out specific expectations for teachers to teach media literacy within the English curriculum, both at the academic (ENG1D) and applied (ENG1P) levels. The new English curriculum consists of four strands Literature Studies and Reading Writing Language Media Studies The following excerpt is taken from the curriculum guide for English regarding Media Studies: Because of the pervasive influence in our lives of print and electronic media, it is important for students to learn how to understand and interpret media works. In the English Program, students should have frequent opportunities to analyze various aspects of media communications, including key elements of the works themselves, the audience and production codes and practices. Students should also learn about the media through the process of creating their own media works, using a range of technologies to do so. By working in the various media to communicate their own ideas, students will develop critical thinking skills and understand at first hand how media works are designed to influence audiences and reflect the perspectives of their creators. Students will also develop production skills that may open up career opportunities in the entertainment and communications industries. Students should be encouraged to appreciate the media as sources of personal information and pleasure.

(Note: Payment is nonrefundable) Course Dates: September 30, 2002 to November 25, 2002 (Synchronous online discussions will be scheduled for select Thursday evenings throughout the course) Course Description According to The Annenberg Public Policy Center's recent study, Media in the Home 2000, "…children spend almost 6½ hours using media each day. And "…almost half (48%) of all families with children between the ages of 2 and 17 have all four of the new media staples among families with children: a television, a VCR, video game equipment, and a computer." Our nation's children aren't wading through media. They are swimming in it. Now, more than ever, it is important to arm youth with tools to deconstruct the hours of manipulative messaging they receive each day. Media literacy is one of the key elements of information literacy, a concept that must be addressed for students to meet Maryland Learning Outcomes (MLO). A significant part of meeting the MLO standards is the ability to evaluate, process, organize and communicate information as it relates to information literacy. Improving students' understanding of media literacy concepts as well as their ability to deconstruct media increases students' capacity to effectively demonstrate the skills integral to the MLO standards.

d Helping Youth Navigate the Media Age Young people today spend twice as much time in front of the television in a year than they spend in school. They also spend hours each week surfing the Internet, listening to music and watching movies. And much of the entertainment media they are exposed to portrays illicit drugs, alcohol and tobacco in a favorable light. The Campaign has launched an effort to help young people become critical consumers of the media. In June and August, the Campaign convened experts in media literacy, faith education and substance-abuse prevention to develop recommendations for using media literacy as an approach to drug prevention. Media literacy programs teach young people how media messages are created and manipulated, so they are better able to recognize how these messages influence their behavior. There are many opportunities for educators, prevention practitioners and faith and community leaders to help youth gain these valuable skills. Programs can:
  • Educate parents and other youthinfluencers about the importance of helping kids critically assess the media. Include tips on talking to kids about the media in parenting classes and materials.

    Parent News for Winter 2003 Of Interest Media Literacy in School and at Home
    by Omar Benton Ricks
    Are children learning to think critically about the things that shape their world? This is a question many parents and educators have on their minds, especially with regard to media. The average American child ages 8 to 18 watches over 6 hours of TV a day and uses other media (including the Internet) an additional 2 hours a day [ ]. Scholars estimate that by the age of 18, children in the United States will have spent more than 16,000 hours in front of the TV set, compared with only 14,000 hours in the classroom [ ]. With their children having that kind of exposure, most parents are concerned about their children's use of media what Web sites they visit, what movies and TV shows they watch, and what music they listen to. Over many years, this concern has led to the implementation of practices and regulations intended to protect children from negative influences in the media. Industries now have ratings for movies, music CDs, video games, and TV programming. Some parents have begun to take action on their own from reducing the amount of time children watch TV or videos, to getting a TV that has a V-chip (an electronic device that allows parents to control what shows a child watches), to putting computers in conspicuous areas of the home so it is easier to monitor what the child is doing on the computer. Recently, the President approved legislation to provide a domain extension of "G"-rated Web sites for children [

    Integrating Media Literacy Teacher Edition and Student Workbook by Robert Kenny In response to the increasing need to study the ever-growing power and influence of media, this course book enhances media literacy-among both teachers and students-by providing a unique and alternative guide for teaching introductory television production. It teaches media literacy through the eyes of its creators based upon the belief that learning how to create media will teach students how to become good consumers of media. Two factors make this book a stand out: Traditional textbooks are aimed at the students while this book targets the teacher as its main audience, providing a supplemental workbook for the students. Secondly, Kenny doesn't just show you how to get yourself up to speed and teach television production, he shows you how to place the practical and technical aspects of television and multimedia production within the context of media convergence, consolidations, government influences, and evolving codes and ethics. This approach keeps students engaged both with the equipment they are learning to use, and focused on the hows and whys of using that equipment in standard TV production.

    What is media literacy?

    Why is it needed?

    What's New?
    The University of Dayton

    Introducing Preschoolers to Media Literacy I recently got a request from a student in Singapore who was doing a project on teaching preschoolers the fundamentals of media literacy for her graduation project. She asked: "How is it that a child as young as 3 will be able to grasp the concepts of the workings of TV?" Below are the suggestions that I gave her and the resources I recommended. Dear Adrian, I'm happy to see that you're doing your graduation project on preschoolers and television. Here is some information and further sources: Taking a child to see a play (children's theater) and having them meet some of the actors and see the stage set up close after the play also prepares them for understanding that what they see on TV is "pretend." They can be introduced to the five key concepts of media literacy: Media construct reality: stories on TV are made up, or perhaps they tell the story of a real person, but have to take all the interesting things that happened during their lifetime and pick and choose the most interesting, so that they can tell the story in 30 minutes, or one hour. Media use identifiable techniques: Use story books with lots of pictures and teach the child that every detail of the picture was carefully selected for a reason - and have the child tell you why certain items are in the picture, why some in the foreground, some background, etc. Then ask qq. about why this detail is in this TV program - what clue does it give you about the person, how they feel about this situation, etc.
