Mass Media as Community Educators.
Brookfield, Stephen D.
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n47 p63-70 Fall 1990
Despite the image of the pernicious effects of mass media, media consumers are not passive receptors of media-generated beliefs and ideas. Educators can help adults become media literate by helping them decode, filter, and interpret the messages they read, see, and hear through content and context analysis. (SK)
