Your job is to select and process research on a media effects topic that you will present to the
class. You will create an annotated bibliography that will inform your presentation. This
presentation will be done in Pecha Kucha style; 20 slides, 20 seconds each. Make your
presentation interactive by interweaving poll questions or an activity for the class.
Analyze and explain controversial issues within one of the following topics and use the
appropriate media concepts to guide your analysis.

Child Gender Stereotypes


Civic Engagement
Gratification Seeking
Consumer Culture (toys, electronics,
fashion, beauty, etc) Identity
Body Image
Television Programs

Surveillance society Fandom


Celebrity Culture/narcissism Violent society (be careful not to use
content that is too graphic)

To address these topics you will need to use the model of audience
effects OR audience uses and gratifications. Refer to your notes from
in-class.
Getting started on your research. First, focus your topic around an
opinion you have on your topic. Then, search for resources to both
support and refute your claim. It is important to be ready for any
rebuttal. You may use the online pathfinders, physical library cart, and

Part B: Pecha Kucha Presentation:


You and your partner will perform a 6-minute and 40 second presentation with 20 slides going
by at a rate of 20 seconds each. The visuals should be very clean with minimal text on screen.
Sometimes only a word or two need show up on the screen. Sometimes only a picture need
show up on screen. You may write a script, but I suggest writing only point form notes. For more
