Think About This First

 

Having The Conversation

 

Start Here:

What are ways that media can be used in a positive way?

We know ways that media can bring people down and make them feel bad about themselves, is it the same for media to uplift people?

How could that work?

What’s an example of something you’ve seen in the media that has made a positive change?

 

Continue:

Have you seen media that is positive? What kinds?

How do they make you feel?

In which ways are they positive?

How are they similar to and different from other, not so positive, media?

 

Keep Talking:

What are things you look for in media you think is positive?

What are the clues for you?

How do you usually hear about it?

Do you find that media that is easy to access and readily available is usually more positive or negative? How so?
