We would like to thank Dr. Gloria DeGaetano for allowing us to adapt this lesson from Screen Smarts: A Family Guide To Media Literacy.
This lesson helps children become aware of the types ofviolence that appear on television, the frequency with which theseacts occur, and how they respond to these acts. It begins with aguided discussion about the different types of violence and then,how violence is portrayed on TV. Using worksheets, students thensurvey the television shows they enjoy for acts of violence andthen, as a class, compile and discuss their findings.
This lesson and all associated documents (handouts, overheads, backgrounders) are available in an easy-print, pdf kit version.
