Types of media

Posted on Updated on

Develop a portfolio of various types of media that give messages to youth and adolescent on self-image, and perhaps use stereotypes of gender roles, social class, and ethnicities to depict typical behavior. Give five examples for each of the assigned age groups, from a variety of media sources. The age groups are, elementary, middle school, and high school. Provide the following information:

– age group

– media source (examples are newspapers, commercials, television programs, cartoons, radio, internet, magazines), give exact information such as date, time, or a link to the specific source

– summarize the media message in three to four sentences

– state the specific impact intended on the age group in three or four sentences

– provide the specific target audience within the age group, for example, gender, ethnicity, income, class

– decide on the age appropriateness of the message based on your readings from this class

– as an education professional, what recommendations would you provide parents when asked about this particular media message

– provide a resource for families to use to assist them in image related discussions with their child(ren)
