It’s time to complete n turn in the assignment for this lesson. You may either complete it on the computer by using a word processor’s drawing tools and cutting and pasting in artwork, or you can complete it by hand if you have access to a scanner and can scan it into a document when you are finished.

  1. Look over your notes. Decide what the basic and true facts are about the story that you just studied. (Hint: These facts should be found in all of the stories that you read.) In the middle of a piece of white paper, write those down. Draw a circle around those facts.
  2. Draw three lines from that circle. At the end of each line, draw cartoon figures that represent the personalities of the news vendors where you read about your story. For example, if I considered the story from Fox News to be kind of flashy, I might draw a cartoon character of a newscaster wearing lots of flashy bling and make-up. You might even decide to be more creative and create superheroes or symbols to reflect each new vendor.
  3. Next to each cartoon, write the name of the news vendor and jot down some notes describing why you chose to draw the cartoon that you did. When you have finished, draw a circle around each image and your notes.
  4. From each of these circles, draw one line. At the end of each line, draw a circle. Inside these circles, write the facts that were included in just that news vendor’s story. These facts should not be found in any other news vendor’s story.
  5. When you have finished, take a look at the image you have just created. In a short essay, please describe what you have learned about navigating your way through mixed media messages.
