This new CML Infographic features CML’s Five Key Questions for Deconstruction – each associated with a Core Concept – to ask when deconstructing media messages, regardless of whether those messages are disseminated on social media, video, billboards or logos. These questions are just a starting point for exploration – but they are a reliable starting point that provide a handy way to collaborate with others and zero in on key concerns for making meaning and understanding.

This new CML Infographic shows the three pillars that media literacy rest upon: Deconstruction, Construction and Participation.

These questions are just a starting point for exploration – but they are a reliable starting point that provide a handy way to collaborate with others and zero in on key concerns for effective production.
