Product Description

Review

It is written in an accessible and personal style which makes it v readable, giving lots to think about. It's also illustrated by references to a variety of academic perspectives and educational contexts/experience (and it's the latter that I think makes it especially relevant and distinguishes it from other similar books on media education and pedagogy).

'There are loads of lively lesson activities which will surprise many, but having tried a few already - they work!'

(Pete Fraser 2006-06-01)

Format: Paperback
Always provocative, often controversial, this book ought to shake up every media teacher's classroom practice. Starting with a quote from 'Everything bad is good for you' it moves on to take the reader through most of the topics available on current media courses to urge that teachers abandon their prejudices and engage with what is happening with the media and with what their students are doing with it. There are loads of lively lesson activities which will surprise many, but having tried a few already- they work!
From video games to texting in the classroom, this book offers an approach to media education which builds on the work of David Buckingham and Jenny Grahame and tackles head-on the attitude that simply bemoans the underperforming student's reluctance to learn. Julian suggests the academic/vocational divide is more or less a myth in media teaching and looks to a different kind of classroom approach.
This book may shake you up and you may not agree with it all, but it's signalling a rapid move in the right direction.

Format: Paperback
Given the void in initial teacher training for media, this book is very welcome.
The style of the book is engaging and highly readable, and certianly reads far better than any ''text' books for teacher training that I have encountered.
McDougall's passion, enthusiasm and knowledge of both the discipline and educational theory and practice shine through all areas of this book.
This book neatly wraps together 'how to' teach sections with a wide variety of lesson ideas together with thorough background knowledge of the topic areas that form the media specs.
For any new to teaching media and indeed for people with soem and lots of experience, this is a very valuable read. This is a book that celebrates the discipline rather than kow-towing to the received 'wisdom' that studying the media is something that can be done in your sleep and should be heartily welcomed for that.

Having being taught by Julian McDougall myself for Media Studies, I found the book to be full of engaging and invaluable ideas which I have been priviledged to be a student, and now teacher, of. The book covers a range of topics which are adaptable for GCSE and the different specifications. The supporting resources that are available online are extremely useful and I have used many of them in the classroom. Invaluable!
