People accepting media as it is shown.
Media literate is analyzing and understanding media
A picture showing that media doesn't always show the truth, so in order to see the truth you need to analyze it
Social media has been an important influence in our society by connecting individuals around the world, sharing entertainment, creating opportunities for people, and is an important thing in people’s lives. Without social media, the world wouldn’t be able to communicate with different people around the world, and learn about the different culture around the world. Social media has brought innovation to the way we connect with people and brought entertainment and opportunities all together. For example things like vine, Snapchat, and people uploading humorous videos in their country are additional features that have been the recent social norm in social media. People will log onto their social media to not only communicate with their friends but also share and view different entertaining videos. Also people who create videos like vine or on YouTube have received an opportunity to become famous on the internet and create a living out of it because of social media. I would also agree that social media has now become an important part of my life, because of how it helps organize some parts of my life, bring entertainment, and helps me communicate and grow closer with my fellow family and friends. The reason why I didn’t do this challenge was because I forgot about it. Social media has become a normal thing in my life that I didn’t have enough self-control to attempt or complete the challenge. I hope that the next time I received the same challenge, I would be more self-control and attempt.
After the lesson about the hidden implications of media messages, I've gained a more broader perspective on images that are displayed in our society. At first before learning about the hidden implications of media message, i didn’t really think much about the images that were displayed in magazines and in website. but i did find some images inappropriate but mostly i didn’t think some normal pictures had hidden implications of being inappropriate. For example the Patriotic magazine image in the power point. i first thought it was just a regular model image showing just the product, however when going more in depth of the meaning behind the image. it was very shocking to find out how much the image showed women being a possession and accessories. i didn’t realize how much of the images that many magazine and things on the internet portray women in such a degrading way. It really made me rethink about looking at any image of any magazine or on the internet. Overall I think society should really focus on changing the way we take pictures for our magazines and really teach the people, our children, and our future generations that the images that display women in a very degrading way should be taught as something wrong.
1. The Paris Commune was so powerful because the working people of Paris decided to overthrow their capitalist state with their own form of government because they wanted to end the exploitation and oppression the government was enforcing onto the people.
2. The people of France enacted on this rebellion because after losing the Franco-Prussian War the country was in a chaotic state therefor the National Assembly tried to conclude a peace with Germany, but the Parisian workers feared that the National Assembly meeting would restore monarchy. This led to the worker revolting against the French government.
3. The Parisian workers responded to the severe economic crisis in France with strikes. They organized labor unions and several political clubs. The First International was an organization of workers that defended the Revolutionary ideas of workers. The working class, also known as the National Guard, was favored by the French army and eventually the middle class.
