Each written assignment will ask you to do four things:

1. Identify how the question addresses a general issue on the social impact of the media.

2. Identify relevant literature on this issue, and explain to the reader why this literature is important. You must refer to the set reading. Stronger essays will delve deeper into the supplemental reading list in the unit guide, or will find additional academic resources through the online database EBSCOHOST. I’ll show you this resource in seminars.

3. Identify a case study which shows how media influence works in practice. You can use ones from the book or lectures, but the better essays will apply ideas from the unit to your own youth media examples. Again, the #ats2439 resource will be useful here.

4. Summarise what you have learned about media influence, based on the literature and the case study.

-And I want this essay have minimal 6 scholarship or journal article.

Here’s the example of how the essay must be done

and I want you to follow the structure and have the relevant case study as well.
