Grounded in best classroom practice, this book aims to help you think about the role of media in children’s lives, and to teach about media effectively in your classroom. Three dimensions of media education for the 3-11 age range are highlighted: children’s own cultural experiences, the development of critical awareness, and opportunities for creative expression. The chapters are written by literacy advisors, leading academics, teacher-trainers, and classroom practitioners. In an increasingly digital world, media education is an essential part of good teaching, not just as a tool to teach the more traditional aspects of the curriculum, but in its own right as an essential part of literacy.
