essay In the article posted on Moodle entitled “Introduction: Media, Democracy, Human Rights and Social Justice” author Sue Curry Jansen discusses 5 framing devices or categories of media activism. Reread the chapter carefully. Now choose either the Roots of Change video created by HYPE or the radio documentary Harper High School created by the WBEZ Radio Program This American Life and review the production carefully. Next research the production you have chosen and reviewed to find out: who made the piece, how it was made and also how it was distributed and received by audiences and who were those audiences. Now write about the production you’ve chosen in terms of one of the five categories of activist media mentioned by Curry Jansen.


Now write about the production you’ve chosen in terms of one of the five categories of activist media mentioned by Curry Jansen. Page 1. In your discussion use at least 3 specific examples from the production to explain how you see the production achieving the goal or not achieving the goal of one of the media activist categories in the article. Write the time code reference number in parenthesis as a citation for each example, i.e. (00:01:09:29). Page 2. In your essay also write about the information you researched about production and distribution (listed above) using references (web citations) to where you got the information. Page 3. Tie this production and distribution information into your argument about how deeply the production meets the goal of activist media. Proof read aloud and spell and grammar check your work. Your grade will be based upon how well you respond to each of the 3 points above as well as the clarity of your arguments and accuracy of your writing.
