Doing the Media: A Portfolio of Activities and Resources.
Laybourne, Kit, Ed.
Because of the prevalence of media in all people's lives and the cultural and perceptual changes brought about by the media, education must create ways to enable children to master the media's codes and control its impact so that they will be active, intelligent, appreciative, and selective consumers of the total media culture. This portfolio describes the unfolding of a project to develop a series of flexible curriculum designs to serve as models in elementary and secondary schools, to train teachers, and to develop teaching materials. An introduction briefly describes the project and the portfolio, and the next section on teaching media offers guidelines and an integrated media arts curriculum for elementary school. The curriculum outlined in the previous section is further developed into activities in sections on photography, film, video, and other media. Concluding the portfolio is a section about the Center for Understanding Media, the project's developer. (SH)
