The Media Teacher’s Handbook is an indispensible guide for all teachers, both specialist and non-specialist, delivering Media Studies and media education in secondary schools and colleges. It is the first text to draw together the three key elements of secondary sector teaching in relation to media study - the theoretical, the practical and the professional - in order to support media teachers throughout their careers: Section One: Contexts explores the history of, rationale for, and justification of studying the media from 1900 to the present day, and considers the tensions implicit in the subject caused by opposing views of culture. Section Two: Curriculum comprises seven chapters that focus on studying the media from Key Stages 3 and 4 in English, through GCSE and A Level Media Studies. It also explores approaches to teaching the Creative and Media Diploma, media and citizenship, and practical media production. Section Three: Career Development is designed to support those establishing and leading Media Studies departments and those who are charged with the initial preparation and professional development of teachers. Written by experts involved in the teaching, training and examination of Media Studies, this one-stop resource is packed with illustrative case studies and exemplar schemes of work which can be easily adapted for your own needs. Suggested Reading and Recommended Resources sections at the end of each chapter list additional books, films, DVDs, groups, agencies, organisations, contact details, websites and other materials which will support your teaching even further. The Media Teacher’s Handbook is an essential guide to the theory, pedagogy, and practice of media education that will enable you to teach your subject expertly and with confidence.

Media Literacy is a critical skill students must learn to succeed in today's tech-driven, media-saturated society. This book helps teachers, parents, and students understand media literacy, and how to implement and share that knowledge with others. As an experienced media literacy expert and teacher, Nick Pernisco provides a practical guide for learning this important skill and implementing it in classrooms to meet Common Core standards. This is a must-read for anyone interested in learning how to interpret the enormous amounts of information we are exposed to everyday, both in traditional media and online. In addition to explaining what media literacy is and how it can be used practically in any learning environment, the book also includes dozens of lesson plans to help teach media literacy using different types of media. Educators will find these activities useful in helping to solidify the concepts explained earlier in the book. Advanced Praise: “Mr. Pernisco has provided a manual for understanding and teaching media literacy that is written in plain English. Teachers can take the activities provided and use them in their classroom tomorrow.” – Mathew Needleman, Instructional Technology Specialist, Founder VideointheClassroom.com "By sharing his personal journey of discovery, Nick guides his readers to a richer understanding of what it means to be media literate in today's world. Nick's simple and direct writing style reaches all audiences. While much of the book is written for teachers, several chapters can be used directly with students from middle school to college very effectively.” – Karen Ambrosh, President, National Telemedia Council, High School English, Communication, and Media Teacher

Increasingly, German Studies programs include courses on the Holocaust, but suitable course materials are often difficult to find. Teachers in higher education will therefore very much welcome this volume that examines and reflects both the practical and theoretical aspects of teaching about the Holocaust. Though designed primarily by and for North American Germanists and German Studies specialists, this book will prove no less useful for teachers in other countries and associated disciplines. It presents and describes successful Holocaust-related courses that have been developed and taught at U.S. and Canadian colleges and universities, demonstrating the depth, breadth, and variety of such offerings, while remaining mindful of the instructor's special moral responsibilities. Reflecting as it does, the innovative Holocaust pedagogy in North American German and German Studies, this collection serves the needs of educators who wish to revise or update their existing Holocaust courses and of those who are seeking guidance, ideas, and resources to enable them to develop their first Holocaust course or unit.

Inspired by the author’s research and work with preservice and beginning teachers, this book presents a unique framework to help educators (grades 3–8) embed their efforts to teach social studies for social justice within the context of literacy. It is a resource for using primary and other sources to offer students new ways of thinking about history while meeting Language Arts Common Core Standards demands for information text and critical thinking. Grounded in the daily realities of today’s public schools, the framework offers a way of planning that takes into account teaching factors that include pressures for content coverage, preparing students for high-stakes tests, and the low importance placed by many districts on including social studies in the curriculum. Each chapter explains how teachers can restructure, reshape, and work with mandated curriculum materials to teach from a critical perspective. The book also discusses how to meet Common Core Standards by teaching language arts and social studies as complementary subjects. Book Features: Sample lessons. Text boxes indicating connections to Common Core Standards. Reflection exercises that help further extend concepts and understandings into classroom practice. Ruchi Agarwal-Rangnathis an adjunct professor in Elementary Education at San Francisco State University, and vice president of the National Association of Multicultural Education, California Chapter (NAME-CA). As an educational consultant she works with schools to develop and enrich their mission of teaching toward equity and social justice. “If you are a teacher, or preparing to become a teacher, this is a book you will want to keep so that you can refer back to it again and again. If you are a teacher educator, this is a book that will help you connect demands on teachers today with a compelling vision of academically rich, student-centered, social justice teaching. In either case, you are in for a treat.” —From the Foreword byChristine Sleeter, professor emeritus, California State University Monterey Bay “This is an important contribution for pre-service teachers and those in districts who are willing to think deeply about how to build content knowledge in an integrated fashion by combining social studies and language arts. Much more attention to social studies from the perspective of social justice is needed!” —Donna Ogle, professor emeritus, National-Louis University
