Media Interactive: This program examines various forms of media, including movies/film, television, radio, internet and print in order to understand its impact on a teenager’s identity and self-perspective. Analysis and reflection on these types of media will facilitate discussion of stereotypes, oppression, peer pressure and other related issues. Videography and photography will be a component of this program.
