The Informed Choices learning guide (workbook) was designed to grab and hold the learner’s attention through a narrative in which he or she is involved. The learner plays the part of a Rookie in a multimedia news centre.
The course addresses a single class of situations: Using language to explore current issues in the media.
This is the first of two courses for the Secondary I level.
Through 10 learning situations and 4 scored activities (formative assessment situations), the Informed Choices learning guide explores current issues through different media genres.
The issues are presented in such a way as to encourage the learner to exercise critical and ethical judgement, for example: cyberbullying, piracy, advertorials, genetic engineering, bias and prejudice, voter apathy.
