ELA Teacher Preparation 2.0: Critical Media Literacy, Action Research, and Mashups
Laughter, Judson
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v15 n3 p265-282 Sep 2015
Engaging preservice English language arts interns in the analysis of mashups accomplishes two objectives: (a) it brings interns to a deeper understanding of action research and (b) provides a critical media literacy (CML) foundation on which they might build with their own students. In this paper CML is defined and recent literature is synthesized, including a specific focus on mashups and DJ Earworm. The author describes his pedagogical context and procedures for examining research paradigms, exploring qualitative methods, and generating findings while developing a foundation for CML. The paper closes with responses to these procedures and implications for English language arts teacher educators and teachers.
