Mini-Media Centers and the Middle School English Teacher.
James, Shirley M.
This paper proposes the establishment of a mini-media center in all middle school English programs. A mini-media center is defined as a planned set of materials which involves students who fashion it as learners and as creators of materials and who serve as mediators between what has been learned and created and what other students may learn by using the completed center. Through direction sheets and kits, teacher guidance, and peer teaching, students learn to prepare visuals, charts, audio and video tapes, slides, games, books, movies, radio shows, and other materials. A mini-media center can be planned and created by one student or by a group of students who share an interest in similar content or in utilizing similar media. Several suggestions for creating and using a mini-media center are given, including possible topics for media study. (TS)
