Canada's Key Concepts of Media Literacy from CML
Project Media presents twelve major media projects. Each media project represents an essential idea in media studies and brings together multiple outcomes, which are itemized for the student at the start of the lesson. In advance of each project, students analyze a media text similar to the one they will design. This interpretive piece is included in the project description and assists students in exploring the principles that will be applied in the creation of media. Prohjects:
