Abstract

This project examines the use of Critical Media Literacy in the secondary Language Arts classroom. Critical literacy is a skillset that helps students deconstruct complex texts to discern the hidden messages within. In order for our democracy to be effective, America must have an informed populace that cannot be easily manipulated by corporate media sources. This project details strategies for critical literacy, the role of technology in critical literacy, and issues facing educators teaching critical literacy. The culmination of the research herein is a collection of lesson plans detailing how to use critical literacy to deconstruct media messages in order to understand the subtext.
