Exploring The Role Of Media – Jade

This term in HSU we have been exploring the role of media in our lives and asking ourselves ‘What is media?’, ‘What is it used for?’ and ‘How does it support us or influence us?’. Specifically, we have looked at the variety of media devices used today, how advertising is created, and why and what kinds of tricks are used to make us think we want to buy things. We also looked at the role of newspapers and learned how a newspaper article is created. We then created our very own newspaper articles! The highlight of this theme will be a trip to a newspaper company where we will see how newpapers are created.
