ABSTRACT

This Learning Unit is intended to provide activity plans for students or other learners in late primary to high school, though they can be shared with any group of people with moderate literacy skills. The activities may be used in classrooms or workshop settings and can be used to develop and enhance critical dimension of the literacy skills of learners. By this we mean, the activities encourage leaners to identify and reflect on the biases encoded in textual and and visual information.

Reference texts and item selections are intended to activate the archive, juxtapose the past and present and incite questions for the student. Through their participation learners will ideally improve their skills for analysing key details in reference materials and learn cues that support the breakdown of meaning. By exposing the positionality of information, learners will be in a better position to think critically about an item’s message and relevance.
