This 78 minute videotape represents one in a series of information videos designed for professional development and as an aid to strengthen teaching skills. The subject concerns ways teachers can moderate the effects of television on the elementary school student. Throughout the video are ideas and suggestions for hands-on activities to teach students how to become enlightened consumers of the medium. In Part 1, teachers learn the importance of analyzing the media and specifically how to deconstruct the artificial medium of television. Part 2 concerns the topic of stereotyping. It presents ideas and ways for teacher to open the eyes of children to television's use of stereotypes. Part 3 looks at the deconstructing of television through shots and angles, sound, story boarding, script writing, and editing.
