forms of organizing the information (from the traditional library to the modern virtual or real resource center). They
comunicate using all the documents available. They must produce apropriate documents for different comunicative
intentions (form flyers to mupies, photographies, video or multimedia) and they analyse and think about the media
speaches to understand the complexity of societies and contemporary cultures in order to act on them when they think
about the big possibilities of the Media Education.

Teaching methodologies

The sessions are focused on discussions in the classroom or in little groups, using the information given by the
teachers or gathered by the students.
The process is based on: reading, discussion and text analysis; observation of different information supports; writing of small comments in the classroom; study visit to the Resource Center; presentation and discussion of the essays and audiovisual work done by the students; Each academic year, the students must read a book – an important one – to think about present day problems and social (or other) issues.
This year, they are reading How to lose a country: seven steps from democracy to dictatorship (2019) from Ece Temelkuran. In a second phase, in group, they must produce and present, in public, an audiovisual product in order to show the competences they have reached in the Unit.

In the class different strategies are used: presentation of the contents of the theory about Media Education, specialy the
most important for the Unit; analysis of theory and audiovisual documents; reflexion about the book choosen and, in
group, the reflexion and the production of a document, in an audiovisual support, which is observed in seminar session.
