Reading TV ( Visual )
in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For many people, especially young viewers, TV is a major source of information and a frame of reference for interpreting experience and the world. "Reading TV" brings together 5 provocative explorations of themes central to any inquiry into television. This introductory resource for media literacy education provides opportunities to think more critically about what we see on television and to develop a better understanding of the most influential and widely disseminated medium of communication. "Watching TV" and "TV tango" focus on the issue of TV violence and its impact on impressionable viewers. "The Bronswick affair" is a lively spoof of television journalism, exposing the excess of consumerism fostered by a steady stream of commercials, and "TV sale" is a channel-surfing tour de force. In "Toys," a commentary-free fantasy about the merchandising of values, a diverting window display of children's playthings takes on ominous overtones
