Media viewing is a fun and exciting activity. In this module, we shall have a short review on getting the main idea of a message – whether written, delivered speech, or viewed material. The technique is basically the same: watch out for the most important idea first, then, get the supporting details. This is followed by distinguishing examples and situations that illuminate the main idea or message.

Getting the main idea is pretty simple if it is directly stated. However if it is not directly stated, then, we have to make inferences and draw conclusions from indirect or implied statements. Learning to make inferences and draw
conclusions is also very useful in determining the meaning of unfamiliar words and phrases. It is a good practice for critical thinking. Don’t immediately turn to the dictionary yet!

Lastly, there are ways of organizing information gathered from viewed materials. From noting details in materials, to noting sequences involved, the last lesson involves arranging actions chronologically. Don’t forget to note details when using description and determine cause and effect—the ultimate in describing sequential events.

Lesson 1 – I see, yet I don’t see.

At the end of this lesson, you will be able to:

  • determine the key message conveyed in the material viewed; and
  • infer thoughts, feelings, and intentions from a material viewed.

Lesson 2 – I therefore conclude.

At the end of this lesson, you will be able to:

  • determine the meaning of unfamiliar words or expressions from the material viewed;
  • express insights based on the ideas presented in the material viewed.
  • draw generalizations and conclusions based on the materials viewed.

Lesson 3 – The clearer image.

At the end of this lesson, you will be able to:

  • organize information from material viewed;
  • note details in materials viewed; and
  • sequence events based on materials viewed.
