Challenges start with big ideas. In this project, we’ll start with the Big Idea of Media.

Big idea: Media

Essential Question: How can we make a difference in our communities with media?

Challenge: Make an impact on an issue you care about with 360° video.


Guiding Questions:

  • What is “media”?
  • How does media send a message? What kinds of media are effective at sending a message?
  • How can I identify an audience for a piece of media? Would the piece of media have a different effect on someone different from me?
  • What is community? Why do communities exist, and why do they matter?
  • What communities am I a part of? How do my communities shape who I am?
  • How is my community special? What should other people know about my community that they might not already?
  • How do communities support young people?
  • What is the impact I want to make?
  • What other questions do you have?
