Image, Language, and Sound: Making Meaning with Popular Culture Texts.
Alvermann, Donna E.; Hagood, Margaret C.; Williams, Kevin B.
Reading Online, v4 n11 Jun 2001
Draws from the authors' own experiences in working with youth in an after-school media literacy club to examine the notion that it is possible to arrive at an understanding of how adolescents make meaning of popular culture texts by observing them in action. Teases out some meaning-making strategies that one adolescent used in strategically reading the images, language, and sounds of one particular rap group's music. (RS)
