Each SLM is composed of different parts. Each part shall guide you step-by-step as you discover and understand the lesson prepared for you.
Pre-tests are provided to measure your prior knowledge on lessons in each SLM. This will tell you if you need to proceed on completing this module or if you need to ask your facilitator or your teacher’s assistance for better understanding of the lesson. At the end of each module, you need to answer the post-test to self-check your learning. Answer keys are provided for each activity and test. We trust that you will be honest in using these.

This module was designed and written in consideration of you, the learner, and your level of knowledge as well as your capacity to learn and apply the skills in English. It was made to immerse yourself in different sources of information and to analyze the informational content of materials viewed using comparison and contrast.
To further enhance your thinking skills in relation to the topic, this module offers different activities that are contextualized and simplified to suit your level of language and reading skills.
There are three lessons covered by the module.
- Lesson 1 – Distinguishing Print Media from Viewing Materials
- Lesson 2 – Distinguishing Broadcast Media from Printed Sources of Information
- Lesson 3 – Distinguishing Online Sources from Viewing Materials
Each lesson leads to the mastery of one another through interrelated discussions and activities. After going through this module, you are expected to develop the Most Essential Learning Competency (MELC) which is to compare and contrast the content of materials viewed to other sources of information (print, broadcast, and online).
