  1. Media Literacy: Thinking Critically About Movies

    This book encourages students to use critical-thinking skills to analyse movies and the movie industry.

The activities require students to evaluate this information and apply it in varied exercises.

Each lesson contains activities, quizzes, a glossary of terms and ‘Teacher Buzz’ sections to prepare for classroom discussions.

  2. Media Literacy: Thinking Critically About Music & Media

    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.

This book asks students to consider the possibilities that video games offer, as well as some of the problems. Students are already thinking about video games. This book asks students to think about video games in a critical and articulate fashion; considering the attitudes and beliefs they generate; how they affect how we perceive others and ourselves; and what they mean to different people.

  4. Media Literacy: Thinking Critically About Visual Culture

    This book, the sixth in a series on media literacy, focuses on visual culture. The effort here is to help students understand the complex social, economic, political, and personal foundations of visual culture. Each unit introduces students to the different contexts in which visual culture exists and functions. The activity sheets require students to recognise these contexts and demonstrate their understanding of the role that visual culture plays in each. The central principle of this book is that visual culture can be used to help students improve their critical-thinking skills.
