INSTRUCTIONS: Read the prompts below. Think about the topic and then write two paragraphs or one-page (at least 250 words). You may choose one prompt to write about, or you may have something to say about all 3. Even though you’re typing into a text box, this is still a college-level writing assignment! You can type into the text box or upload a document (do NOT upload wps).
PLEASE USE PROPER GRAMMAR AND PUNCTUATION. Do not use a small “i” in reference to yourself. Capitalize all proper names and titles, INCLUDING TV shows, video games, corporations (ie Sony PS4). For Apple products, the first “i” is small and the “P” is capitalized: iPhone, iPad, iPod.
1. Describe your first encounter with electronic media or your initial impression of it. How did it make you feel? (for example: your first time web browsing, texting, or playing a video game).
2. Describe an early reaction to media content – were you happy, excited, scared, confused? (sometimes children react much differently to images, sounds, and ideas than adults.)
3. Describe something that you learned through media. (books, magazines, Sesame Street, news, websites, cartoons, advertising, etc.)
