Teaching Media-Savvy Students about the Popular Media
Maness, Kevin
English Journal, v93 n3 p46 Jan 2004

It is experienced that the problem with educating children against, rather than about, the media is the assumption that students are passive audiences of the media, lacking the critical, analytical skills necessary to resist media manipulation.
