PRODUCT SUMMARY


We live in a world saturated with media: a constant stream of words, pictures and sounds, surrounding us every day and influencing our thoughts and actions. Media literacy is the ability to understand these messages and make informed decisions by learning to access, analyze, evaluate and even create various forms of media. By examining examples from the advertising, news, entertainment and political arenas, students will discover many techniques and motives behind media messages, and how to develop their own interpretations and opinions. Part of the multivolume Research Skills for Students DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.


EDITORIAL REVIEWS

"...features plenty of relevant terminology, and serves up clever examples of how to deconstruct seemingly “neutral” content, while also encouraging viewers to carefully develop their own opinions…Highly recommended."- Video Librarian (March/April 2005)

"This up-to-date and polished series will be a valuable aid to high school teachers and library media specialists involved in the research process."- School Library Journal (Feb 2005)

"…comprehensive and complete…a must-buy…especially valuable for use in collaboration with classroom instructors."- Library Media Connection (Aug/Sept 2005)
