In the book, The Rise and Fall of English , Robert Scholes recommends a major overhaul in the teaching of English by replacing the canon of literary texts with a canon of concepts, precepts and practices for investigating the meaning-making process. He suggests that restoring the medieval trivium of grammar, dialectic, and rhetoric as the center posts in English education will help students "situate themselves in their own culture [. . .] and make the basic processes of language itself intelligible and fully available for use" (119). The point is not to pretend to offer students some magic talisman that will enable them to tell truth from falsehood in the media, but rather help them understand ‘mediation’ (the pouring of raw data through the sieve of any particular media) as a textual process that requires interpretation.

Workshops Media literacy empowers people to be both critical thinkers and creative producers of an increasingly wide range of messages using image, language, and sound. It is the skillful application of literacy skills to media and technology messages. As communication technologies transform society, they impact our understanding of ourselves, our communities, and our diverse cultures, making media literacy an essential life skill for the 21st century.

Video In The Classroom
Useful Techniques For Teachers
Instructional television, video, and other technologies like maps, books, film, newspapers and slides, help students learn and retain what they have learned. Most instructional television/video programs are designed to stimulate interaction between the student and teacher. However, to help students get the most out of supplementary video, the teacher must have the knowledge, skills, confidence and enthusiasm to spark that interaction. Television in the classroom is a frienda teacher's aide. Teaching with video is interesting and rewarding; it brings many new and exciting experiences to the classroom. The attitude of the teacher is very important in making the lesson a success. If the teacher doesn't take instructional television and video resources seriously or gives them only marginal attention, learning benefits will be minimal. Instructional television's effectiveness will be only as good as the teacher's method. A good teacher is a good teacher television or no television. The construction and management of learning using a video-based lesson is a technique the teacher will develop from experience. However, many teaching techniques and tips on using television and video can be shared with you to aid in the development of technology-based lesson planning.

FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ERIC, CONTACT ACCESS ERIC 1-800-LET-ERIC Children today are growing up in what O'Sullivan, Dutton and Rayner (1998) call a "media saturated" world, in which mass media, including the Internet, have a commanding presence in daily life. Media messages exert such powerful "social, emotional and intellectual influences" (Hepburn, 1999) that it is important to develop a society which understands how media can both serve and deceive. It is thus imperative for educators to teach what Megee (1997) calls "the new basic"- media literacy - so that learners can be producers of effective media messages as well as "critical consumers of ideas and information" (Rafferty, 1999).

Understanding the Hype: Media Literacy (An Education World e-Interview With Catherine Gourley)
Every day, we are bombarded with messages when we watch television, go online, or read newspapers and magazines. What do those messages mean? What is their purpose? How should we process media messages? In a recent e-interview with Education World, noted author, educator, and media literacy expert Catherine Gourley shared her thoughts about media literacy and its role in education. Gourley's latest book, Media Wizards: A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Media Manipulations, introduces techniques to help students crack the codes of media messages. "Media wizards are a creative bunch. They produce their messages using a warehouse of tools visual effects, sound effects, words that have positive or negative connotations, headlines that SCREAM!, and photographs that sensationalize. Some wizards speak in sound bites and advertising slogans. Others mouth media metaphors. But their words and their illusions aren't magic. They are simply messages, each constructed with a purpose to inform, to persuade, or to influence behavior."

    CONTENTS Executive Summary Introduction: Why Media Literacy Education is Preferable to Censorship I. What is Media Literacy Education? II. Media Literacy in the U.S.: A Brief History ... Bibliography EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Media literacy education has come a long way since the 1970s, when the first "critical thinking" courses were introduced in a few American schools. Most educators today understand that with the revolutionary changes in communication that have occurred in the last half-century, media literacy has become as essential a skill as the ability to read the printed word. Equally important, media literacy education can relieve the pressures for censorship that have, over the last decade, distorted the political process, threatened First Amendment values, and distracted policymakers from truly effective approaches to widely shared concerns about the mass media’s influence on youth.

    Media Literacy By Cynthia Peters When my daughter came home from kindergarten telling me that her school was teaching her about the media, advertising, and such things as toy packaging, I was impressed. She was beginning to get the tools necessary to think critically about the blizzard of advertising and commercialism we confront everyday. It’s always been clear that no matter how much parents de-emphasize TV or avoid the malls and the Disney stores, kids will be hit hard by the corporations that want them to consume their products and their values. We can’t protect kids from all the media messages, but we can empower them to be critical. We can make them "media literate," the goal, I discovered, of an important political movement that has gained momentum in the last few years. With programs sprouting all over the country, finding outlets in schools and churches, the media literacy movement aims to equip children with the skills they need to critically view commercials and be better consumers. Some media literacy programs also teach children how to use various mediums themselves. According to the Aspen Institute Leadership Forum on Media Literacy (1992) and the Canadian Association for Media Literacy, media literacy is the ability to "access, analyze, evaluate and produce communication in a variety of forms." Is this a long overdue anti-corporate critique of the media? Not exactly. The people who preach media literacy hail from all over the political spectrum. Their funding sources are everything from the Catholic Church to Disney Corporation and MTV. They use media literacy as a tool to counter whatever media messages they find particularly abhorrent or as a neutral form of "education."

    TEACHING TEACHERS ABOUT TALK The Importance of Conversation in Preschool Classrooms On the third floor of Larsen Hall at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, thousands of video and audiocassettes line the walls of a room not much bigger than a closet. The cassettes contain data of an unusual sort-voices of children in ordinary conversation with each other and with adults at school, at play, and at home. The conversations comprise the raw data of a longitudinal research effort known as the Home-School Study of Language and Literacy Development. Begun in 1987 by EDC senior researcher David Dickinson and Catherine Snow, professor of language and literacy at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, the study set out to examine the connections between children's early spoken language skills and their later school performance. "Our interest was in low-income children in particular," Dickinson explains, "because it was apparent that somewhere in upper elementary school—fourth or fifth grades—-working-class children begin to fall behind their middle-class peers. It seemed to us that their oral language skills—-established in the preschool years—lay at the heart of their later struggles."
