Mass Media in the Classroom.
Firth, Brian
The teacher is provided with a range of practical suggestions for teaching about mass media. Chapters are devoted to the press, magazines, television, advertising, and film. The author argues that the teacher must start from the place of the various media in the lives of the children and not from a desire to instruct the children as to what they should think about a particular medium. The book is intended for teachers of children from age nine through high school. The author is English, and while many of the examples he uses may not be familiar to American readers, the principles from which he works are useful. Lists providing suggestions for further reading are included. (Author/JK)
