  3. Media literacy defined
    Media literacy is a pedagogical framework for the study, analysis, and eventual production of media in the classroom
  4. Media texts are “read” like poems or stories.
    They are analyzed, looking for the same results students have sought from their texts for years:
  5. author’s intent
    reader’s reception
    historical context, etc.
    • teachers require students to write essays for assessment
    • media students produce audio & video for assessment

  7. The Media Literacy Classroom
    • A Progressive Classroom
  8. Students must have command of themselves
    Critical thinking will hone their judgment
  9. Learning is a social activity
    A participatory culture will allow this to happen in an organic way that mirrors students’ lives outside of class
  10. A democratic classroom
    • Democracy = intelligent participation through critical analysis
    • NOT passive acceptance of given facts.
    • teachers must differentiate their instruction
  11. Liberal Media Literacy
    This is traditional textural analysis

    Critical Thinking is self explanatory
  12. Participatory Culture
    In a school with a computer lab there are no barriers to engagement
  13. Differentiated Instruction
    Many paths to learning

    All just good pedagogy

    • Nobody is born a democrat or republican
    • Decision is made based on how you perceive the world
  16. The media landscape shapes our perceptual landscape
    someone who only listens to one media outlet has avery narrow perceptual landscape
  17. Rather than seeing the world as it is, people see it as it’s represented in the media.
    When the media celebrates America’s plentiful resources people are wasteful

    during pushes for ecology and green energy people conserve
