This is a series of six lessons. If the extension activities are used the lessons can fill a 50 minute class period. Lessons include defining media, identifying how media is constructed, that audiences negotiate meaning, that media has commercial implications as well as social and political implications, and each medium has a unique aesthetic. The lessons are not primarily about science. Source: Media Smarts
