Using Media Literacy to Explore Stereotypes of Mexican Immigrants.
Vargas, Lucila; dePyssler, Bruce
Social Education, v62 n7 p407-12 Nov-Dec 1998
Examines media portrayals of Mexican immigrants, and interplay between these images and portrayals of U.S.-born Latinos. Argues that examining media images is imperative because the influence of media saturation is almost overwhelming. Suggests a media-literacy framework for developing abilities for interpreting media and giving students control over media influences. (DSK)
