Tweens and Teens Short In-Class Presentations This assignment is designed to encourage you to look closely at media representations of adolescence, identify their underlying themes and evaluate to what extent they influence the teen audience for which they are intended. In class, we will choose five or six representations and divide into groups to research the representations and present on them for 8 minutes in class. Each member of the group needs to participate in the presentation. Each person can answer one question or you can team up on questions as long as everyone presents. Questions to address (be sure to provide an explanation and evidence for your answers): 1. Who created the show? When? What's it about? Who watches it? 2. How are adolescents represented? 3. How are adults represented?
