Students can find out what goes into making the nightly news and learn critical thinking skills in interacting with the media. Just as there are architects who draw blueprints and construction workers who create buildings, there are people who put the news together. A news program is carefully structured. All the people and things that go into the mix affect the final product. The Media Literacy component discusses what media literacy is, the key concepts, a glossary of terms, a hotlist and much more information about this important topic.
