Meida Ownership, Day 2
Today was the continuation of yesterday's lesson and project. Their is wide disparity here. Many are very into the project and because of that were not able to finish in time, and some who did not want to draw at all (they were then offered the option to copy and paste the logos). There is also a wide disparity in terms of understanding, which concerns me. Many really seemed to understand yesterday (and today in the lesson with step 4), were frequently shaking their heads that they got it, and answered questions that made it clear they understood. Yet today many did not know WHY they were doing this project. I need to find some ways to briefly reinforce WHY it matters that the media is so consolidated and how it effects them. I will try to do that to some extent before we move on to the next topic....detecting media bias.
