"Mass Appeal": Critically Analyzing Mass Media and Creating Counter Narratives by Laurence Tan at 122nd Street Room42 YoungStarZ, WYC (WattsYouthCollective)

This is a collection of activities used in the classroom with fifth graders and in the community with WattsYouthCollective (WYC) youth ranging from 6th-college students. We analyze media in critical ways and then create our own forms of counter media. The website showcases various youth media projects that you can use as examples in and out of the classroom.
