Purpose Setting & Genre when Reading Media Discussion

Purpose Setting & Genre when Reading Media Discussion

Question Description

Discussion 2: Purpose, setting, & genre when reading media

An important skill for students to learn involves applying the best strategies for the type of text they are reading. There are a variety of factors to consider, and students often assume that their reading techniques will not need to change regardless of what they are reading. For this discussion, I would like you to refer to the video Future literacies: A crash course in media literacy.

For this discussion, consider the following questions:

  • When, if ever, would you instruct students to skim and scan reading material?
  • How do you teach students that they have to consider the purpose, setting, and genre when deciding how to read a particular text?

Refer to the infographics on pages 63, 64, 65 ,66, 89, and 103 in Disrupting Thinking for examples of reading techniques, strategies, and frameworks to refer to. If you refer to other strategies, please cite your source unless the strategy is universally known across content areas. An example would be K-W-L; however, that can be attributed to Donna Ogle.

Please post a response and reply to the main response of at least four (4) other students. *will post these later*
