Media Education in the Primary SchoolMoreNational Curriculum requirements and the growing awareness of the relevance of popular culture to childrens experience has meant that media education is now firmly established as a part of the media curriculum. Media Education in the Primary School provides a practical guide for teachers on how to approach media education. The author offers helpful ways into areas such as teaching about media institutions, news and the concept of representation, as well as more accessible topics such as soaps, comics and advertising. Cross-curricular classroom activities such as video work, simulating advertising campaigns, photography and storyboarding are also included. All the activities have been thoroughly tested, and are compatible with current National Curriculum requirements. Carol Craggs sets the activities in a theoretical framework. She clarifies key issues and identifies appropriate teaching methods, putting the emphasis on active child-centred learning and a collaborative approach. In addition, she provides an appendix of National Curriculum requirements for easy reference to simplify record-keeping and assessment.
