Hello dear teacher I would like to thank you for this huge effort. I am one of your G1 one students and I wrote an essay talking about the westtren media I hope you will like it.

The Western Media and the obliteration of the Islamic identity.
Whether we accept it or not, the Western media has incredibly changed our islamic identity.What we see in reality is absolutely assure this idea.Our way of dressing , of eating ,and of treating others… . This srategy could undoubtedly obliterate our culture, our believes and even our islamic identity.
The Western media’s influence in the islamic identity can be seen obviously in many deferent aspects.We become like those bicultural people.Our clothes which was long and wide like “jlaba” are changed to be too tight like “jinz”. The beard which was the symbol of the islam becomes the symbol of terrorism.Also the diversity of the foreign channels is dominating in the few islamic ones,as a result , the most of us are influenced negativelly by those stranger ones .Moreover,many concepts are seem to be familiar like "globalisation "," mode",and "style",and those islamic consepts which descripe our believes and values such as "cooperation","charity",and"submission " ,are seem to be strange and unacceptable .And who still clinging to his origine is called as a retrograde or an underdeveloped person.Even with all these dreadful transformation of our culture,values and identity,many people still think that the Western media comes to develop and culture our underdeveloped islamic world.However , if they considered why this Western media comes and colonizes our islamic media ,they whould not say what they used to say,and they could descover the secrets of this malicious project.
The western in general is planing not only to change our mentalities but also to obliterate our identity from the basis which are our believes ,culture and values . And that could not be realised without a smart strategy which is media. So be clever and try to cling in your identity,your islamic identity .

Dear Drissia,
Congratulations! Your highly professional blog on Media and Information Literacy for All is very interesting in the sense that it will serve as a platform for students, scholars and researchers all over the world to share ideas, experiences about Media and Information Literacy. It is of particular interest to students and young people as it will encourage them to learn more about Media and Information Literacy skills and competencies to succeed in their personal, academic and professional life. Nowadays, MIL has become the priority target of any individual and a perquisite of the information age.
I am glad to see that you have succeeded to gather all the documents of the First International Forum on Media and Information Literacy which we organized in Fez, Morocco, in June 2011. As a follow-up to the Fez Declaration on MIL, here are some of the activities which took place:
1. In Celebration of the First anniversary of the Fez Declaration on MIL, we organized an International Seminar on “Media and Information Literacy at the University Level” on 5-6 June, 2012 at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities Sais Fes, Sidi Mohammed Ben Abdellah University, Fez, Morocco. The seminar gathered teachers, activists, media specialists, journalists, and librarians to raise students' awareness of the vital importance of Media and Information Literacy in their academic and professional lives.
2. The Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain, organized the first seminar of the UNESCO UNITWIN UNAOC Cooperation Chair on Media and Information Literacy and Intercultural Dialogue (UAC-MILID) on May 22-25, 2012.
3. The University of Cairo, Egypt, organized the second seminar of the UNESCO UNITWIN UNAOC Cooperation Chair on Media and Information Literacy and Intercultural Dialogue (UAC-MILID) on April 22-25, 2013.

The media are successful in telling us what to think about refers to the Agenda-Setting Theory of the Press and to News Values. You should also address the implications of News Agenda Settings.

1. You should explain the second element of the statement "what to think about": News Agenda Setting based on News Values.
2. You should explain the first element of the statement: The media are not successful in telling us "what to think."
