Representation and Media Impact

Representation and Media Impact

This powerpoint contains video clips which may not be suitable for all learners (some cover body dysmorphia, eating disorders and other mental health issues) and so I strongly advise that you watch them before showing to a class (they are age appropriate, however). Again, this lesson may be useful for Media BTEC or a lesson reviewing cultural trends/the harm that representation can cause.
