From comics to cathedrals, pie charts to power ballads, fashion to Facebook . . . students need help navigating todayÕs media-rich world. And educators need help teaching todayÕs new media literacy. To be literate now means being able to read, write, listen, speak, view, and represent across all mediaÑincluding both print and non print texts, such as film, TV, podcasts, websites, visual art, fashion, architecture, landscape, and music.

This book offers secondary teachers in all content areas a flexible, interdisciplinary approach to integrate these literacies into their curriculum. Students form co-operative learning groups to evaluate media texts from various perspectives (artist, producer, sociologist, sound mixer, economist, poet, set designer, and more) and show their thinking using unique graphic organisers aligned to the Common Core State Standards.
