Grade 5.1 2017-2018
We are inquiring into How We Express Ourselves.
Central Idea: Media influences the way we think and act.
Lines of inquiry - What is Media?
How media influences audiences
How media uses data
We will look into the central idea through the lens of the following key concepts:
Form, function and perspective
Related concepts: similarities and differences
This week we are tackling the first line of inquiry by observing and recording the different forms of media that we use or notice around us. Then we will look into the purpose of that media, and will sort them into categories.
Some of the student questions that have come up: does media change? how to use media?
Below is an example of some responding to a media piece. Students viewed the image and used a visible thinking routine to show their thinking: what is the message and What makes you say that?
View life from the lens of a 10 year old, and it will bring much humour and joy. That sums up my experience with my grade 5 students at ISS.
