Adbusting: Critical Media Literacy in a Multi-Skills Academic Writing Lesson
Grigoryan, Anna; King, John Mark
English Teaching Forum, v46 n4 p2-9 2008
This article provides 10 reasons why it is important to do critical media analysis in the second language classroom and describes how a process-writing approach can be used for this in a university writing class. The authors explain how to prepare a lesson plan and the idea of an "Adbuster." They then describe 10 stages in the lesson plan that involve different activities that blend the themes of an advertisement with the stages of the writing process.
