Thinking Critically About Newspapers & Magazines
This book encourages students to use critical-thinking skills to analyse magazines and the newspaper industry in both their print and digital forms.
The units in this book provide students with information about newspapers and magazines, discussing their history in both Australia and the wider world, and speculating as to the role both might play in the future.
Newspapers and magazines are considered as sources of information, business commodities and publications with the ability to influence and shape society.
The activities require students to evaluate this information and apply it in varied exercises. Students will be asked to reflect on examples given from both Australia and America while developing answers to the questions in this book. Each lesson contains activities, quizzes, a glossary of terms and 'Teacher Buzz' sections to prepare for classroom discussions.
