Structure
This learning path consists of three tracks (lessons) each with a number of steps.

Track 1: Learners analyse their own media usage and compare their media consumption with other learners.

Track 2: Learners explore how stereotypes are used in the media and how they affect how we see the world and the people around us.

Track 3: Learners consider historical and contemporary examples to explore the mechanisms used in propaganda and consider how they themselves might be influenced.

Learners require approximately 100 minutes for tracks 1 and 2, and about 50 minutes for track 3.
