The History of Weddings – Lessons in Digital Literacy

The History of Weddings – Lessons in Digital Literacy This lesson is based on an infographic about weddings, their history and some related customs and practices.

In the lesson students will explore their opinions of weddings and marriage and discover some new information about the origins of various customs.

There are also four online research tasks which encourage students to develop a range of digital literacies including checking sources, checking the validity of information and researching new information and building infographics around it. You can choose one for your students to do or if you prefer get them to do all four.

You could also split your class into four and get one group to do each task and then share their findings.
The final task is a social research task that encourages students to create their own questionnaire to explore the attitudes of their social media contacts after which they produce an infographic from the results.
