Mass Media Manipulation

Ask students to read the two articles referenced below and observe how the accounts vary, even though the articles are covering the same event.

In a classroom discussion, examine the similarities and differences between the articles. Does the writing reveal anything about the author? Any bias? Have students choose a story of their own and write two different accounts using the same set of facts.

1. "Pretty Girls Chase the Puck", Ottawa Free Press, February 28, 1908, p. 11
2. "Ladies at Play", The Ottawa Citizen, February 28, 1908, p. 10

Suggestions for Other Activities

Ask students to interview grandparents, or senior neighbours, about their hockey memories and what hockey meant to them as they were growing up. Have students write a report on their findings.

Ask students to research the history of a piece of hockey equipment, noting how it developed and changed over the years. Have students watch a hockey game and write a newspaper account of the game.

The Stanley Cup has had an interesting history. It has been stolen, lost and borrowed. It has been banged around, gone for a swim, and has even grown in size over the years. Ask students to research an interesting story concerning the Stanley Cup, write a report and present it to the class.
