Two articles are presented relevant to media and adult learning. In the first article, "The Pedagogy of Communication: Conscientization through Mass Media," David G. Gueulette sets forth ideas derived from Freire's theory of literacy training and suggests means by which effective teaching strategies can be developed through popular mass media techniques for the enhancement of "conscientization" of critical consciousness among adult learners. The emergence of critical consciousness can lead to re-socialization or meaningful change in the viewpoint of adults. In the second article, Sandra Gruetter Migocki and George Y. Travis study the use and cost effectiveness of the videotape program, "Basic Education: Teaching the Adult," a thirty-two-lesson videotape series for the training of teachers of adult basic education developed by the Maryland State Department of Education. The authors conclude that the format is feasible and within the economic grasp of states and territories, but that it may need individualizing in some cases. Following the articles is a book review of "The Free University: A Model for Lifelong Learning," by Bill Draves. (KC)
