Media Influence on Adolescent Abstract
In today’s day and age, multimedia is a central focus of teen society. From television advertisement broadcasting the latest Apple-product to magazines covers featuring an “airbrushed” supermodel; Canadian teens are bombarded with images that can serve as negative influence towards their self-esteem. The purpose of this research paper will be to analyze the Canadian media of the twenty-first century and in turn propose ways in which the media’s influence on teens can become knowledge for them in a learning environment. Group Lesson plan An example lesson that could be used in the classroom could be;

Have students work in pairs to look for bias in music. Each pair would read the lyrics of a popular artist and examine what ideas, beliefs, feelings etc. are displayed by the artist. What might be the bias, point of view, or intent of the writer of this song? Have students compare the bias of the artist with the ‘non-mentioned’ other side in the song, for example, if the artist is singing about a lost love, what might be the bias of the other person who the artist is singing about. For example, why won’t you

get back together with the artist? Afterward, students can create an alternate ending to the song and share with their partner via media form. Media Literacy Center 5 key Questions to

This is where a lot of youth are misguded by the media. They are confused and very swayed by what they see which can dangerous. The media is has a very strong impact on teens and adolescents' lives. What is the norm? Summary The media will always play a huge role in the development of kids and teens. There are many positive messages but unfortunately those are shadowed by the negative. So much focus on body image and looks makes it very difficult for teens to handle their emotional and physical changes. Applying different theories and figuring out ways to conquer negative self-esteem is very important. Teens need to know that they are beautiful and wonderful people inside and outside no matter what. How can we help? As educators we need to make sure our students are encouraged and motivated to be great. Confidence is one of the most important factors to overcome these obstacles they will face.

people (interpsychological) and then inside
the child (intrapsychological).
