First, watch this video:

Do a little research through Google, Dogpile, Ask.com, or some other search engine, on the effects of media on self-image. How does the media portray ideal girls or boys? What message does the public get bombarded with each day concerning what is the “perfect” body? spouse? job? home? or life?

When you find information that you believe is relevant, summarize it in a new post (not a page) on your blog labeled Assignment 4. Somewhere in the text of that post, create a link to one of the sites where you found the most useful information. Is all the media about self-image bad? Is there some good media out there? Let me know what you find. When you have finished your post, visit the blogs of at least three of your classmates and leave them a thoughtful comment about this assignment and their post concerning this topic.
