Media Literacy for Citizenship

A Canadian Perspective

By Kirsten Kozolanka, Paul Orlowski

Description
Offering a critical perspective, Media Literacy for Citizenship emphasizes the ability to analyze media messages as a fundamental component of engaged citizenship. The first five chapters explore the landscape of media today, while the next four chapters present critical insight into special topics that include climate change, diversity in Canada, Indigenous issues, and war and terror. The concluding chapter discusses the role and future of journalism in society. Each chapter forms a mini-lesson and encompasses three core elements: an essay on a subject area important to critical media literacy; a list of case examples that can be used for assignments; and a list of key terms common to all chapters and cases. The diverse topics of study and the rich pedagogy make this book a perfect resource for courses in communications, journalism, media studies, and education.
