Digital and Media Literacy: Connecting Culture and Classroom
Hobbs, Renee
Today's students tweet, text, and navigate apps up to 12 hours each day, but they may not know how to effectively analyze a TV show or website. Award-winning author Renee Hobbs demonstrates how to incorporate media literacy into the secondary classroom, providing the tools teachers need to: (1) Effectively foster students' critical thinking, collaboration, and communication skills; (2) Integrate media literacy into every subject; (3) Select meaningful media texts for use in the classroom; and (4) Recognize the "teachable moment" in dialogue about popular culture. Included are vignettes of Grade 6-12 teachers who are connecting their English, history, chemistry, and health classrooms to media culture. A companion website offers video clips and discussion questions related to the sample lesson plans in each chapter. "Digital and Media Literacy" offers a wealth of ideas that you can implement immediately to prepare students for college and the workforce. A preface, a bibliography, and an index are included.
