The Media: Representations and Stereotypes
The Media is aimed at years 9-11, it examines how the media influences stereotyping and portrayal of ‘extremist’ countries. The lessons cover an introduction to the media, layout, fact and opinion as well as different writing techniques. These resources are based on the first-hand experiences of young people who participated in two expeditions in 2010, Journey to the UK and Journey to Pakistan. The young teams worked with artists, politicians, social entrepreneurs and other young people to build up a portrait of these countries beyond media stereotypes, through blogs, films and photos.
