ED 523 Underwriting the Media with Research and Pedagogy (3)
Through critique of multiple media delivery systems, students will develop an understanding of messages, both overt and subliminal, that are present. Students will utilize the motivational and instructional qualities of various media to enhance curriculum in P-12 classrooms. Students will evaluate and prepare materials and activities for use by teachers and students in order to enhance teaching and learning in the content areas, as well as to develop critical evaluation skills. The roles of gender and culture will be highlighted. Instructional videos, instructional television programming, documentaries, film and web resources will be used to develop these materials. All assignments will be stored online in the Central EdMedia Reference Library for community access and attached to Student Portfolio. Laboratory hours required.
