The Internet offers enormous possibilities for teachers who include discussion of media in their courses. However, without expert guidance, it is difficult for instructors to know how to use the Web as a resource for teaching about the media. Here, at last, is the resource that teachers need. For more than 30 years, Richard Beach has been instructing teachers in ways to integrate film, television, and other forms of media into their classrooms. He has poured his experience and his wisdom into this book, creating a comprehensive but easy-to-use guide that will be embraced by teachers from middle school to graduate school. This one-stop resource: contains concrete suggestions for teaching central concepts of media studies and media literacy involved in teaching critical analysis of film, television, digital media, media representations, audience response, media genres, magazines, advertising, news, documentaries, and film adaptations; includes "teaching ideas" from teachers about how they are using media in the classroom; and shows how students learn about the media as they create their own digital media texts, websites, blogs, wikis, and podcasts.

It also provides links to thousands of useful, current websites about topics, lessons, webquests, references, and curricula that are readily available to teachers for use in their classroom; and offers support through the book's Website to ensure that readers will always have access to current information.
