For part of the lesson, we will be looking at the video, which I posted the other day, featuring Beyonce. Her endorsement of Pepsi is an example of one of the main concepts of Media Literacy that media have commercial interests and implications. http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/music-celebrities-teens-food-ads-1.3616358
There were small parts of the documentary The Mask You Live In, which we watched. It is a Netflix documentary that echoes some of the discussions we have been having along the lines of stereotypes and identity. Here is the trailer for the film. It should be viewed with an adult, who would be able to provide some context and explanation for some of the ideas. Also, there is some content that is mature.
I decided to move the Math test until tomorrow. I wanted to formally review the content, and provide time for questions, before evaluating them.
