Discussion: Decoding the Media

by Neil Finney

We are constantly bombarded by the media and life events in our classrooms. As teachers, we have an obligation to prepare students for decoding the media and making sense of the real world.

Describe a time when you stopped everything to witness and discuss something with your students that was happening in the world.


During Neilʼs 9 years of teaching experience, he has taught in London, England; Ontario; public and private schools; elementary and secondary; junior; intermediate; core french; developmental skills; and now junior gifted (grades 4,5,6). He is a Reading Specialist that has been incorporating technology in his practice consistently throughout his career. Neil has recently published his first book entitled “Ignite. Incite. Inspire.” – Examining 21st Century Issues in Education, which is a collection of teaching articles and posts written from January to December 2011.
