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.
