Becoming an effective communicator allows one to express creatively, spoken and written. A fluent vocabulary and willingness to listen expands the creative process. We need this in broadcasting to write commercials and news stories; then, tell the story.
Communication is a both a verbal and non-verbal tool we use daily. There are many ways to communicate and our style depends on the setting. It is important for youth to learn communication techniques that provoke a respectful vocabulary and soft skills leading to personal and professional growth. Media literacy is defined as the ability to access. Words, tone, listening, facial expressions and body language are all considered when interacting with one another.
We use logic and reasoning to identify the strengths and weaknesses of alternative solutions, decision making, conclusions, and approaches to problems. Encourage our youth to explore and research topics, then formulate a story without bias.
Media literacy is the ability to access, evaluate, manipulate, and create media and is a critical step in the creative writing and communication development process.
