Is youth crime really as serious as the media suggest?
In this lesson, we will look at how the media portrays youth crime and compare this to some statistical data about youth crime. We will use a case study to identify how the media uses sensationalisation to dramatise youth crime and learn what a group of young people think the issues of this are, as well as how they feel this could be tackled.
