A Little Bit of Media Analysis, by Dr. Jerome Devitt
A Little Bit of Media Analysis, written by Dr. Jerome Devitt and edited by Paul McAndrew.
“A little bit of Media Analysis” is designed to demystify the sometimes-abstract world of ‘New and Traditional’ media, a key component of Learning Outcome 2.6 of the Politics & Society subject specification.
This topic proves challenging for students because the rapidly changing ‘Media Landscape’ makes reliable, up-to-date information hard to identify and scrutinize.
It is a ‘classroom-ready’ guide, walking students through the key terminology and theories of the topic, offering “Case Studies” with contrasting interpretations to help students develop their own opinions.
The ‘Exam Focus’ section links those key concepts to Data-Based and essay questions for students to master.
