The Children Are Watching: How the Media Teach About Diversity

Teachers College Press, 1 abr 2000 - 202 páginas

When it comes to teaching about diversity, schools face a powerful competitor – the mass media. Analyzing both entertainment and news media, this important new book grapples with such issues as the ways that media frame diversity-related themes, transmit values concerning diversity, contribute to stereotypes, and influence thinking about topics like race, ethnicity, gender, religion, and sexual orientation. Cortés suggests ways that schools and parents can more effectively address the implications of this inevitable media multicultural curriculum. Both powerful and useful, this seminal work should be on every educator’s bookshelf.
