Survey of the Mass Media: Curriculum Guide for Stow Senior High School 1971-1972.
Hackman, Judith; And Others
An outline guide for a survey of major mass media--newspapers, magazines, radio, television, movies, books, and advertising--is presented. The course intends to help students develop critical judgement of the media by improving viewing, reading, and listening skills. The objectives include: (1) presentation of the characteristics of each major medium, (2) demonstration of the factors shaping the offerings of each medium, (3) examination of the self-regulatory guides of each medium to determine if these are sufficient to insure quality and service, (4) identification of devices used by any or all of these media to measure or to mold public opinion, and (5) formation of criteria to judge what one receives through all media. The outline includes assignments, study projects, and bibliographies for each medium, a comprehensive bibliography for all of the media surveyed, and a list of additional suggested projects.
