Content Standard English Language Arts Standard E (Media and Technology)

Content Standard: Students in Wisconsin will use media and technology critically and creatively to obtain, organize, prepare and share information; to influence and persuade; and to entertain and be entertained.


In a technological world in which thought is increasingly dominated by media, such as newspapers, magazines, radio, television, movies, computer software, and electronic networks, students need to understand the impact of media on daily life. To use media effectively students must be able to evaluate information and match the information with the appropriate medium for a specific audience. In order to do this, they must recognize how communication changes from one medium to another.
