A Recipe for Action: Deconstructing Food Advertising ties the critical thinking skills of media literacy with a nutrition theme that meets national education standards for middle schools in language arts, health and technology.  The lessons focus on deconstruction of food-related media messages using the Five Key Questions and Core Concepts of media literacy and incorporate recognizable media clips and examples.

·  Meets the demands of frameworks for 21st Century education advocated by leading groups such as the Partnership for 21st Century Skills and utilizes the Center for Media Literacy’s MediaLit Kit™ Framework.

·  Keeps the curriculum content consistent and fairly short so that educators can commit the time and energy to it.

·  Ensures that the technology demands and teaching strategies used meet the capacity of a wide spectrum of educators.
