                       per day using media.

• From a Media Lit Website - Social Studies:
Facilitate a discussion of the relationship between
  media and terrorism . What use do terrorists make
  of various media? How do terrorists manipulate the
  news media into communicating their messages and
  furthering their causes? In recent years, how have
  terrorists used self-produced Web sites and video to
  achieve their objectives? How dependent are
  terrorists on media messages about their activities?
  Prepare for this discussion by defining the word,
  “terrorism”. How is terrorism different from any
  other combat? Then, have student groups analyze the
  media coverage of a selected terrorist act based on
  the questions listed here and then share their findings
  with the class.
Terrorism: a political issue.
