MEDIA LITERACY UNIT
Unit Overview
The Media Literacy Unit helps students decode media messages about themselves while empowering them
to establish their own creative and unique voices. It builds on previous themes of empathy and introduces
the new theme of branding. This unit’s goal is to transform students from mere media consumers to dynamic
media producers. Students answer important questions like:
•	 “Who made this message and why?”
•	 “How are they attempting to influence my behavior?”
•	 “What messages do I want to share and why?”
