Analyzing the media webquest

  3. 3. Introduction<br />This webquest is designed in order to explore the workings of the media. How does the media work? is the fundamental question for this webquest.<br />Experience is ‘mediated’ through discourse. Social reality is constructed. The most basic strategy for doing this is called Framing (relate this to the 4 strategies of how reality is transformed by discourse. Here, we focus on media as discourse)<br />(in the broadest sense of the concept) Framing refers to the process whereby we organize reality –categorizing events in particular ways, paying attention to some aspects rather that others, deciding what an event means and or how it came about. How to interpret our everyday encounters with the world around us.<br />Framing can be applied to: how a picture ‘frames’ a scene and a newspaper ‘frames’ the story<br />We are going to analyse what it means to be critical literate when approaching media utterance and we are going to analyze a media content. <br />
  4. 4. Tasks<br />This assignment consists of two tasks. <br />1. Sketch the profile of a media literate person in terms of knowledge, attitude and skills.<br />2. Analyze a media utterance by answering the 5 core media questions we've learned in class. <br />
