The media and life after death
Transcript of The media and life after death
Watch the clip and write down as many different forms of media as you can.
Then: Choose 3 examples and explain how they influence people.
How are we affected by media?
Whilst some people strongly feel that the media should not be free to criticise religious views on matters of life and death; there are others who would disagree. They believe that the media should have the freedom to criticise if they believe something else.
Using the worksheet provided make a spider diagram explaining all the different arguments for the media being free to criticise.
THEN for each reason say whether you agree or disagree and why.
The media should be free to criticise
What are we going to explore?
We will be looking at 2 arguments:
1. arguments which say that the media should not be free to criticise what religion says about these issues.
2. arguments which say that the media must be allowed to criticise what religion says about these issues.
Talk to the person next to you: How does the media influence our lives? (Give examples of types of media from the starter in your discussion)
What are we doing this lesson?
The media and matters oflife and death
Using your I-Pads, research
Richard Dawkins' bus campaign.
Find out what he did to criticise religious views.
For example what media did he use to spread his message.
Then search for one more example of criticism of religious views on matters of life after death in the media.
This could be any of the forms of media we looked at earlier.
For example: A newspaper article saying Pope is wrong about abortion, mothers should have the right to choose.
You have some reasons in front of you which explain why the media should not be free to criticise religious views on matters of life and death.
Put these reasons in order from the most persuasive to the least.
Extension: explain why you have chosen that order.
Think about whether you agree that yes the media should have the right to criticise religious views on matters of life and death, and be prepared to explain why.
Or no you don't think the media should have this freedom, and again be prepared to explain why.
Use your spider diagram answers to help you.
