Teaching Youth to Critically Read and Create Media- Second Edition
Praise of the author
MEDIA LITERACY IS ELEMENTARY
“Not teaching critical media literacy to your first graders? Why not?! With television and Internet content shaping how children see their world and themselves, Jeff Share argues ‘the earlier the better.’ This book makes a compelling case for helping our youngest students analyze and create media. Taking up the tools—cameras, computers, pens, and pencils—in their own hands, children begin to participate in the discourse of democracy. Most importantly, they learn that they belong.”
Carol Jago, President of the National Council of Teachers of English;
Director of the California Reading and Literature Project at UCLA
