Behind My Screen
Choose any digital content you consumed this week — website, video, blog, news article, photo essay, ad, etc. — and critique it based on the literacy principles we have explored in this unit. Go beyond the surface of what you see on the screen and analyze the hidden messages behind the content.
Your analysis can be presented orally (presentation to the class) or visually (video, Glogster, Padlet, poster board). Include screenshots of or links to the content.
Consider these questions when analyzing:
Who is the target audience of this content?
How do I know this information is true?
Is this content trying to sell me something?
Who benefits if I share this content?
Who is the author? Why did they create this content?
