Media Literacy in Teacher Education: A Good Fit across the Curriculum
Meehan, Jessica; Ray, Brandi; Walker, Amanda; Wells, Sunny; Schwarz, Gretchen
Journal of Media Literacy Education, v7 n2 p81-86 2015
Current preoccupations in teacher education reform include data gathering, teaching technique, and preparing PK-12 students for standardized tests. The purpose of American education has been reduced to economic benefit. Concerns with ethical behavior, the good life, and democratic citizenship have fallen by the wayside except perhaps in a single social foundations course. Media literacy education infused in the teacher education curriculum offers one way to restore purpose to teacher education, encouraging both pre-service teachers and their students to think critically about their media-dominated society.
