This book is designed to help students use their interest in music to develop better critical-thinking skills. Students will develop these skills by analysing information, reflecting on their own thoughts and feelings, and employing creative problem solving. They will investigate common themes in musical lyrics, the economic structure of the Australian radio industry and social and legal concerns related to music. Students will also encounter ethical considerations, learn about musical history and discuss gender issues. Through analysis of a subject that most teenagers already enjoy, students will become more media literate and develop a better awareness of the social issues that affect music and its listeners.
