Rating
4.0 stars

Every media source has a story to tell--a driving purpose. The media that people consume largely shapes their world views. The US public is becoming more divided partially due to the consumption of increasingly biased news. As a critical consumer of media, It is important to be able to separate fact from opinion. In this unit, adapted from the high school version, students will become critical consumers of news, by identifying media bias in order to become better informed citizens.  NOTE: This unit has been adapted for use at the middle school level from the resource Identifying Media Bias in News Sources by Sandra Stroup, Sally Drendel, Greg Saum, and Heidi Morris.

Perspectives in Hidden Figures:  Circle of Viewpoints
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
4.0 stars

In this lesson students will examine the characters in a chapter who happen to have differing view points. This is an important factor for success with this lesson. Students will analyze characters and actively express theiir perspectives on different topics and questions.  Students will use their background knowledge,previous learning from the book, and make inferences about the characters. During the "discussion" students use their acting skills to be a partticular character and discuss from that point of view. They will justify the stance they take as they speak in character.  This creates a great understanding of perspective and view points before moving into deeper dives about author's perspectives.
