SHORT RESEARCH PAPER: MEDIA LITERACY/MEDIA
EFFECTS
ASSIGNMENT DESCRIPTION:
Media literacy and media effects are closely intertwined.
This assignment is intended to drive that point home.
You should watch a one-hour new, original television
program (not two 30-minute programs). The genre is not
important to this assignment.
Take notes during the program.
At the top of your written assignment, write the day, time,
channel, and name of the program you watched.
News, documentary, and sports programming
present specific challenges. They require
political, cultural and/or historical literacy for
their optimal consumption. Be prepared to face
(and answer to) these challenges if you choose
this programming.
You may stream the show or watch it on the internet,
though you must watch new programming (i.e., not a
rerun of the 2015 Super Bowl or the pilot of Breaking
Bad).
IF THE SHOW WAS CANCELED OR ENDED MORE
THAN A YEAR AGO, IT DOES NOT QUALIFY FOR
THIS ASSIGNMENT.
YOU MUST WATCH TELEVISION PROGRAMMING. AN
ALYSES OF THEATRICAL FILMS OR VIDEO GAMES
ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE.
REQUIREMENTS:
For the written portion of your assignment, address the
following questions:
1. Would Potter (the author of your media literacy reading) argue that being media literate
as it relates to this program is important?
HINT: do not suggest that media literacy is
not important. It ALWAYS is. All
programming draws upon, depends upon,
and capitalizes upon the varying degrees of
its viewers’ media literacy for its impact. If
you are writing about
sports/news/documentary/comedy/reality
programming, be clear about this program’s
relationship with (a) cultural/historical
literacy and (b) media literacy. THINK
CRITICALLY. AVOID BEING
COMPLACENT.
2. How does this television program compare to what you normally consume on
television?
HINT: do not use this prompt as an
opportunity to write at length about the
programming you love. Briefly use the
programs you love to lead into the more
important issue: how might the program you
have chosen impact you, given your own
building blocks of media literacy? BE
HONEST: DO NOT FALL VICTIM TO THE
‘THIRD PERSON EFFECT.’
3. Given what you are reading about media effects, how might media scholars expect you
to be affected based on this one program?
a. How might their expectations change, based on how you responded to question two?
b. What theory or theories support those expectations?
Refer in detail to Potter. Look seriously at
the possible effects of this program on you.
How would scholars expect the general
audience of this program to be affected
over time? Do not privilege your own
experience. CONSIDER
POTTER’S CRITERIA.
Your paper must be at least 1500 words long and
formatted appropriately (see Grading and Assignments.)
You MUST provide a list of cited sources (in MLA
format, this is known as a Works Cited page; in APA, it
is a References page) at the end of your paper. This
citation list/page does not count as part of your 1500
word minimum.
 You MUST cite Potter.
 You MUST cite your textbook (Baran).
 You MUST cite at least two additional works.
The citations for each of these two additional works
MUST be ANNOTATED. This means that each of these
citations must be followed by a brief (approximately 150
word) descriptive and evaluative paragraph. This is
the annotation. Its purpose is to inform the reader of the
relevance, accuracy, and quality of the source(s) cited.
NOTE: Dictionaries, Wikipedia and IMDb DO NOT qualify
as sources.
Your response to EACH question should contain at least
one citation.
A NOTE ABOUT CITING YOUR SOURCES: There are
several styles for citations. Whichever you use is
acceptable as long as 1) you are consistent and 2) it is
The show i want to use is Euphroia its about a girls addiction and talk about how it affectbcied me watching the show
