MG Report Card | How to Deconstruct a Music Video

A lot of music videos can be produced to create different messages that impact our society in different ways. In this lesson, MEDIAGIRLS hand out a Music Video Report Card and participants can fill out the grading for categories about lyrics, diversity, and how women are portrayed in the music video that is shown. This gets girls to think about the different messages about gender in music videos. Also, a deeper discussion about how to incorporate positive change into these negative portrayals of women in music videos and songs is conducted.
