Exploring Media Literacy Series
by Capstone Press/Compass Point Books

Series Review
This timely collection covers issues such as violence in the media, the bombardment of advertising, the reliability of today’s news outlets, and the marketing of body images. It also broaches how to sort fact from fiction in modern media. Questions are posed throughout the text to promote critical thought about what society is seeing and hearing, particularly on television. Graphs, photos, and fresh design elements make this set visually appealing, while sidebars, extensive source notes, and “Media Literacy 101” spreads, which propose several stimulating thought exercises, make these titles useful. A balanced and interesting way to open discussions about potentially controversial subjects.—School Library Journal
