We’d like to give a great big thank you to Martin Street School in Milton, Ontario, and to their amazing librarian, Mrs. Webber! We spent a day there this week, chatting with grade twos and threes about the media, and how we can use big questions to really understand the information we receive from it.
Here are some of the big questions these students asked:
- Who makes media and why do they make it this way or that way?
- What information is there, and what is missing or incomplete?
- Why does information sound so different, depending on who gives it?
- Why is it important to ask “Why?”
Do movie makers deceive us by using green screens? Hmm…
