到達目標


This course is designed to help you identify and analyze arguments present in media, and to investigate the various issues that arise from this.

We will look at a variety of media in order to engage you in cross-curricular conversations that explore the complexities of academic and real-world issues. Using an inquiry framework, you will practice reading and analyzing articles and research studies; viewing music videos, film and TV; and looking at artworks and performances. You will learn to synthesize information from multiple sources, develop your own perspectives in written essays, and design and deliver oral and visual presentations. You will be empowered to collect and analyze information with accuracy and precision in order to craft and communicate evidence-based arguments.
