For-Against-Neutral Assignment

The For-Against-Neutral Assignment was designed in partnership between Instructional Technologists and Librarians at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University. This assignment is a single‐session video editing exercise to introduce aspects of information and media literacy. Students are divided into groups and given historical news content and an assigned angle to selectively edit a video together that advocates “for, against, or neutral” to the topic. The session concludes with students voting to guess the angle of each group.
