Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

This title on media literacy is brimming with useful instructional material about self-assessments, web-based tools, sample lesson plans, and more. The volume could provide fodder for anything from a single instructional activity to an entire elective course, and it contains useful material for any educator teaching media literacy. This second edition has been updated and expanded, including material on the most recent presidential election. Baker's curricular outline includes a wealth of links to online resources, and the material aligns with professional standards from the International Society for Technology in Education and the National Council of Teachers of English. Teaching students to be critical when viewing films, TV, the Internet, and more is a challenging proposition in today's shifting landscape, and some of the book's visuals (for instance, a cigarette advertisement) may date quickly. The author provides an intellectual framework and vocabulary that is flexible enough to extend to user-generated content, but this warrants its own treatment in the next edition. Baker's clear approach will give educators the tools they need to help students examine what they see in the media, an especially important prospect as children and young adults consume fewer "big media" products and the power of gatekeepers wanes. VERDICT Media literacy is an undeniably important academic skill, priming students for the in-depth analysis needed in postsecondary education. This is a valuable selection for school librarians and educators who are seeking to foster critical consumers and citizens.—Wendy Stephens, Jacksonville State University, AL

Review

“Media expert Frank Baker’s update to the original 2012 edition focuses on helping K12 educators better define, understand and teach media literacy. In addition to more than 80 recommended resources, this version includes new insights from educators and experts, as well as media literacy lesson plans, guiding questions, exercises and checklists for deconstructing media messages. The book also provides advice for teaching students how to avoid bias and stereotyping in their general approach to learning and writing.” -- District Administration magazine

“[Baker] provides research and examples to show not only the importance of media literacy education, but also the effortlessness of its application.” -- Praise for first edition, Jonathan Friesem,
Journal of Media Literacy Education

“Brimming with useful instructional material about self-assessments, web-based tools, sample lesson plans, and more.” --
