Media Literacy and Consumer Awareness Lesson – Teacher Feedback:

  1. “My students thoroughly enjoyed this! We will actually be going into Day 3 with it as we completed Day 1 and then jumped to the Extension of Learning for Day 2 and on Day 3 I am going to bring fresh made orange juice and store-bought and we are going to have our own taste test – this got the kids excited – and then we will go back to Day 2 and write our insights. Some of the kids prefer Apple Juice as well so we may incorporate that as well.”
  2. “My students loved this resource because it also led into a debate about which orange juice is best. They were so engaged and interested in the topic.”
