Quick Overview

Today's average youth spends over 10 hours a day consuming
media. Aided by technology, young people can instantly share and engage with
media messages to find answers, get directions, shop or connect with friends.
But access alone doesn't lead to critical thinking. Media are texts, designed
to be read, analysed, deconstructed and reconstructed. Understanding how to
interpret advertising messages, check for bias or avoid stereotyping are among
the skills students need to become knowledgeable consumers and producers of
media. This book helps educators understand the importance of teaching media literacy
and gives them the tools needed to bring this form of literacy into the
classroom.
