While most of the resources in this case study are intended to help you train students, the resources listed below aim to help you think about what is important when you teach media literacy. They can also help your students think about their own perspectives on the media.
When we talk about media literacy, questions arise. Should media literacy train students to appreciate media, or to deconstruct where they come from critically? Does media literacy require students to produce media to understand them? Is production training enough to encourage critical thinking? Are students already learning enough about the media outside of class? Do students just take on the attitudes teachers want them to about television, movies, and the Internet in class, then leave those attitudes at the door when they leave?
