As this presidential election comes to an end, so does our Media Literacy project. We spent the last seven weeks analyzing how political campaigns influence the media and how the media influences the democratic process. Students took the quiz on isidewith.com to see which candidate they side with most and, based on these results, joined that candidate’s campaign by creating four pieces:
- a campaign video
- a spoken word piece
- political art
In the end, over 230 students have been working hard to get all their hard work out to the public on their own campaign websites that are linked below. Note that some classes elected to allow a third party candidate into the conversation. Other classes had students that wished to play devil’s advocate and join a campaign that they disagree with or what to know more about. These websites are live and information will be added throughout the week.
