The open-ended activities in this book are designed to extend the imagination and creativity of students and to encourage students to examine their feelings and values as influenced by the media. The activities focus upon the cognitive and affective pupil behaviors described in Williams' Model: fluent thinking; flexible thinking; original thinking; elaborative thinking; risk-taking; complexity; curiosity and imagination. The 57 activities are interdisciplinary in nature and include such topics as TV or movie characters as role models, newspaper slogans, criticism of commercials, eye witness accounts, game shows, and censorship.
