In the She Can Be Media Savvy! program, girls will learn to analyze what they see and hear in the media, separating fact from fiction, develop critical thinking skills, become smart consumers of products and information, and understand the role of media in our culture.
Discussions and activities will include the traditional types of media (radio, television and print) as well as texting, social media, viral videos, memes,
and video games. Girls will analyze beauty standards set by North American media and how it impacts their self-esteem and confidence.
This program has three learning focuses. While the
program will touch on each one, facilitators will
adjust the emphasis depending on the girls’ needs
- Critical Thinking
- Online Safety
- Self Esteem & Beauty Standards
