A brief look at a range of media texts with the theme of celebrity weddings. Students examine how a range of digital and print media is used to cover an event like a celebrity wedding. This is a lesson that helps students look more deeply into digital media and non-fiction texts, I use it as a gateway into looking at a more serious media issue later in the week. Aligned with Common Core State Standards: RI.7.10 , W.7.2

Standards

By the end of the year, read and comprehend literary nonfiction in the grades 6–8 text complexity band proficiently, with scaffolding as needed at the high end of the range.
Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas, concepts, and information through the selection, organization, and analysis of relevant content.
