Teaching Media Literacy through Contemporary Issues Cover
With this book, students explore the concept of democracy and how the media messages we encounter affect our participation in the democratic process. In developing their understanding of the nature of that influence, students examine media messages in both historical and modern contexts. They learn to critically analyse media messages and apply what they have learnt to their own media projects.
