Media Literacy Poster Project

Media Literacy Poster Project


Presentation component: You and your partner must present your poster to the class and speak for 3 minutes. During your presentation you should include the following points:

  1. Introduce yourselves.


The media’s idea of beauty:

  1. What are some similar characteristics of the models appearing on the ‘media’ side of your poster?
  2. What message is the media sending? Who created this message? Why is this message being sent?
  3. What values, lifestyles and points of view are represented in, or omitted from this message?
  4. What are some of the differences? Is there much diversity?
  5. Are your pictures mainly men or women? Why do you think this might be?


Your idea of beauty:

  1. What is beautiful to you and your partner? Explain the pictures you selected. Is there much diversity on this side of the poster?

I recommend having a cue card prepared for each of the above questions with some notes outlining your main points.
