Rethinking Popular Culture and Media

Rethinking Schools, Ltd
"Rethinking Popular Culture and Media" is a provocative collection of articles that begins with the idea that the "popular" in classrooms and in the everyday lives of teachers and students is fundamentally political. This anthology includes outstanding articles by elementary and secondary public school teachers, scholars, and activists who examine how and what popular toys, books, films, music, and other media "teach." These thoughtful essays offer strong conceptual critiques and practical pedagogical strategies for educators at every level to engage with the popular. "Rethinking Popular Culture and Media" features over 45 articles, divided into 6 sections: (1) Study the Relationship Between Corporations and Schooling; (2) Critique How Popular Culture and Media Frame the Parameters of Historical Events and Actors; (3) Examine the Connections Between Race, Class, Gender, Sexuality and Social Histories in Popular Culture and Media; (4) View and Analyze Representations of Teachers, Students and Schools; (5) Take Action for a Just Society; and (6) Use Popular Culture and Media to Transgress. Writers include Wayne Au, Bill Bigelow, Linda Christensen, Barbara Ehrenreich, Ellen Goodman, Herb Kohl, Gregory Michie, Bob Peterson, and Renee Watson.
