Media Literacy:
The What, Why and How To's
For many years now, The National Telemedia Council has been asked if any clear, succinct yet comprehensive overview of media literacy was available. While Telemedium consistently addresses curriculum concerns, and textbooks like Visual Messages provide K-12 strategies and activities to integrate media literacy into the curriculum, there is need for a simple overview that explains to a newcomer to the field, just what media literacy is, and why we need it and where it belongs. These few brief pages then, represent our contribution to that need. by David Considine (Published in the Fall 1995 issue of Telemedium , The Journal of Media Literacy,

47. What Is Media Literacy
Is media literacy Taught in School? Yes, many teachers do teach media literacyskills. Can Parents teach media literacy Skills for the Internet?
What is Media Literacy?
Media literacy - a learned skill like reading or writing - means being able to "read" the messages communicated by TV movies and the Internet. We all need media literacy skills to help us judge the value and the truth of the messages we receive. Kids especially need these skills as they spend enormous amounts of time consuming media messages. Without guidance, kids may not realize why the message was created or how the message-maker intends to influence them. Is Media Literacy Taught in School?
Yes, many teachers do teach media literacy skills. Several states, including Texas, New Mexico and North Carolina, require media education for high school graduation. Many states' information literacy standards include media literacy: the ability to both comprehend and analyze media messages. The American Library Association has developed and posted Information Literacy Standards you can review. Sometimes media literacy skills are the goal of instruction. For example, a teacher who wants to highlight how marketing strategies target children might have students visit three or four web sites that invite kids to enter contests, then compare how these sites encourage kids to reveal the personal information marketers want.

Media Literacy Activity Summaries
The Media Literacy Activities ask students to critically examine and analyze the multimedia projects of others, especially those they find in the real world around them. Frequently the media literacy activities complement production activities where students work on their own multimedia projects, as in the pair Audience Influence (media literacy) and Defining Your Audience (media production). The Media Literacy Activities are intended to help students develop their own high-quality multimedia projects and use them responsibly.
Audience Influence
By defining and then inventing an audience for a media product, students learn about the ways media products are shaped by their audience.
Looking at Interviews
By examining the conscious construction of an interview in this activity, students are better able to use interviews for the purposes of their project and critically evaluate the interviews they see in other forums.
Multimedia Representations
By looking critically at the ways organizations represent themselves in various multimedia products, students will better understand the ways media are used to shape audience impressions.

Media literacy is the ability to access, analyze, evaluate and create information in a variety of print and non-print media formats. Media literacy is an expanded view of traditional literacy essential to survival in a media-filled world. It is mindful viewing and reflective judgment.
Media literacy is the "ability to choose, to understandwithin the context of content, form/style, impact, industry and productionto question, to evaluate, to create and/or produce and to respond thoughtfully to the media we consume. It is mindful reading, listening and viewing, accompanied by reflective judgment."

by Robert James
I f children can learn to evaluate media, they can see how they are often duped and manipulated, instead of informed.

Sixth-grade teacher Alan Lengel realized he was getting through to his students when, in the midst of a classroom discussion about stereotypes, twelve-year-old Matt volunteered his criticism of a popular TV program. Matt disliked the way the show consistently portrayed adultsespecially parents. In his opinion, the show always made grown-ups "look stupid." "It doesn't teach you to respect your parents," he complained.
In fact, the program Matt criticizes, "You Can't Do That on Television," while intending jest, does a daily hatchet job on adults. Teachers are presented as foolish and petty bureaucrats, service workers are slovenly and rude, and parents are either feather-brained Milquetoasts or overweight, drunken slobs.

    Media Smarts Today's middle schoolers are immersed in the media. They watch TV and movies, surf the Internet, use CD-Roms to research information, exchange e-mail, converse on cell phones, make tapes of favorite songs, and are rarely without a Walkman. Yet they are not very discriminating. Too often they are passive receivers and acceptingly uncritical of the myriad messages delivered t hrough all these sources. Middle school teachers have a vital role to play in teaching young adolescents to be media literate.

    KIDSNET MEDIA NEWS: Media Literacy AAP Statement Of Policy On Media Education
    The American Academy of Pediatrics has issued an official statement of policy on the importance of media education. The policy includes brief statements on the amount of time spent with the media; the impact of media violence on aggressive behavior; sexual content in the media; tobacco and alcohol; effects of media on obesity and school performance; and the value of media education. The abstract for the statement is given below; the full text may be read at the AAP's website.
    Abstract: The American Academy of Pediatrics recognizes that exposure to mass media (i.e., television, movies, video and computer games, the Internet, music lyrics and videos, newspapers, magazines, books, advertising, etc) presents both health risks and benefits for children and adolescents. Media education has the potential to reduce the harmful effects of media. By understanding and supporting media education, pediatricians can play an important role in reducing the risk of exposure to mass media for children and adolescents.

    Media Literacy
    The Many Versions of "Hamlet"

    The beginning of the play sets its tone, and sketches the characterizations of the principals-in particular, Hamlet himself is defined. How a director of stage or screen portrays the first few scenes will determine the course of the play. Directors of Hamlet draw upon a deep pool of prior interpretation and adaptations, handed down from generation to generation over hundreds of years. When a director like Kenneth Branagh sets out to film "Hamlet" he has several examples from which to draw; for any director shooting "Hamlet" today, Laurence Olivier's 1948 version must serve as a touchstone of interpretation.
    Show your students the first three scenes of the play; first as portrayed by Olivier, and then by Branagh. Unlike Branagh's "complete" "Hamlet," Olivier cuts the play, and reorders scenes as he sees fit; he even includes a "thesis"-"this is the story of a man who could not make up his mind." As they watch the film have your students note the obvious differences: the set; the music; the effect that the black and white versus color film stock makes.
    The second scene of the play is tripartite. We start in the official court, where Claudius attempts to put the best face on recent proceedings; then we witness Hamlet's soliloquy, where he blasts his fate; and we end with what might be considered an underground court, Hamlet's friends who know that "something is rotten in the state of Denmark."
