DescriptionMedia Teaching provides a fresh contemporary approach to media education which will be welcomed by all students and teachers of the media. Dan Fleming's text not only charts a detailed map of contemporary media studies but also shows how a busy teacher can move around this map. The text is supported by a wide range of examples - from the classroom, from the media itself, and from other texts. It should become an indispensable resource for teachers of media studies and for those engaged in media education across the curriculum.
Dan Fleming bases his text on both wide teaching experience and a broad knowledge of contemporary media research, to provide a clear theory of learning that is grounded in actual classroom work. His approach is characterized by an argument for a more learner-centred perspective on media teaching. Covering not only the concepts and the structure of the media, Fleming offers teachers and lecturers a coherent account of the key issues and essential skills of media teaching.
