Teaching TV Production in a Digital World: Integrating Media Literacy - Teachers/Second Edition


(Paperback, 212 pages, $25)

Author: Robert F. Kenny, Ph.D. Publisher: Libraries Unlimited

Available in both teacher and student editions, this guide has been updated with the latest advances to provide an exciting alternative approach to teaching first-year TV production to high school students. A combination of class instruction and independent video-action projects based on the concept of thematic mapping helps prepare students for a year-end video competition. The projects borrow knowledge from other subject areas to teach media and visual literacy, broadcast history, video production skills and multimedia animation.
