  2. Unpacking Fake News: An Educator’s Guide to Navigating the Media with Students

    The term fake news has become part of global discourse. Although some have appropriated the term for political purposes, actual fake news represents an inherent threat to democracy given the ease through which it is consumed and shared. This book is one of the first of its kind to address the implications of fake news for the F-12 classroom. It explores what fake news is, why students are susceptible to believing it and how they can learn to identify it. Leading civic education scholars use a psychoanalytic lens to unpack why fake news is effective and to show educators how they can teach their students to be critical consumers of the political media they encounter. The authors also link these ideas to the broader task of civic education and critical engagement in the democratic process.

  8. Media Literacy in the F-12, Updated and Expanded Second Edition

    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.

  11. Seen and Heard: Children's Rights in Early Childhood Education

    Seen and Heard summarises research and theory pertaining to young children's rights, and offers strategies educators can use to ensure the inclusion of children's perspectives in everyday decisions. The authors' work is based on three essential ideas: 1) the 'one hundred languages' children use for exploring, discovering, constructing, representing and conveying their ideas; 2) the 'pedagogy of listening', in which children and adults carefully attend to the world and to one another; 3) the notion that all children have the right to participate in the communities in which they reside.

  12. Differentiated Activities and Assessments Across the Australian Curriculum

    A significant advantage of working with the Australian Curriculum is the ability to modify existing content descriptions for broader curriculum application. Because they lend themselves so readily to differentiation, Australian Curriculum content descriptions can lead beyond lower-level test-prep answers to higher-level thinking and mastery of 21st century skills. Carolyn Coil's practical examples show educators how to use differentiated curriculum, instruction and assessment to promote individual student achievement. Within this framework, this book addresses over 50 topics in the Australian Curriculum learning areas of English, Mathematics, Humanities, Social Sciences and Science.
