Is TV a danger? CEIA MASS 2013

  1. 1. Brainstorming! Make a list of words related to television. Share your list with the class and learn the ones you did not know by adding them to your own list. Then discuss about advantages and disadvantages of TV in Chile.
  2. 2. CEIA MASS Departamento de Inglés Diego Ulloa Iglesias & Ma José Landeros Unit IV: Here and Now Lesson II: Is TV a danger?
  3. 3. Hi! I’m glad to be in this program to talk about one of the most relevant examples of mass media at present: “Television”. I’m going to read aloud some of the e-mails you sent to the program about our topic tonight: “Is TV a danger?”
  4. 4. First parent: My question is “Do violent programs really impact child negatively?” Psycologist: My answer is “yes”. Unfortunately children and teenagers tend to imitate those models.
  5. 5. Second Parent: I’m worried about sexual issues presented at any time of the day. My husband and I are working all day long, so we can’t avoid that. Psychologist: I agree with you, but this is a difficult problem at present. Even if Chilean society is still very rigid or maybe has a double standard towards the problem, all the channels do present sexy models and even very young girls.
  6. 6. Third Parent: I would like to know… Psychologist: Oh, I’m pretty sorry, but the program is over. But let me tell you something. You have two options: watch TV with your children or lock the television set when you are out! See you next time! Bye.
  7. 7. Tick the following answer(s) that show(s) the main idea of the text. a. The program is about problems of violence on TV. b. The show of sexy models and girls. c. The dangers of some aspects of television for young people and children.
  8. 8. Answer the following questions according to the previous text. a. What kind of text is it? b. Who are the participants? c. Where are they? d. What does the text say about Chilean society? e. Do you agree or disagree with the psychologist’s opinions?
  9. 9. Make a chart of 10 Chilean programs and classify them into the different categories shown in the rectangle below. Entertainment – Documentary – Humor – News – Reporting and Actualities – Religion – Education – Sports – Drama / Comedy – Game show – Reality show – Public Service Announcements
  10. 10. Extra activity: Make a poster showing the two sides: good and bad points of television for people.
