Teachers wanting to tackle media literacy in their classrooms now have a fantastic resource to help them get started.  Frank Baker has created a dynamic tool for teachers across the curriculum.  Each chapter covers specific aspects of media literacy and how to use them in the classroom, including examples, discussion ideas, links and countless additional resources.   What makes this book remarkable is Baker’s ability to provide tools for all ages, it really can be used for K-12 or even graduate-level media pedagogy courses.  Teachers of any subject – of any age group – can find something in this book that will encourage critical thinking of EACH of their students.
