All media comes with an author and an agenda. Whether in the classroom or at home, help kids think critically about any media they view with critical questions that dig below the surface. Use these five essential questions as a springboard, and help kids dig deeper with even more critical questions of their own. And to really empower kids, have them create their own media with these same questions in mind. Click here to download a student worksheet modeled after the five questions in this video. And for additional lesson plans, videos, student handouts, and more on this topic, see our News & Media Literacy Toolkit.
