About the workshop: Looking Beyond the Frame
The ability to analyze and evaluate media messages is an essential first step in becoming media literate. Deconstructing individual media examples, identifying the persuasion techniques used, and applying media literacy concepts are important skills that can lead to a deeper understanding of the media messages that bombard us every day. But this is just the beginning. True media literacy requires “looking beyond the frame” of the media message to examine its context.
