Introduction to Mass Communication: Media Literacy and Culture is an integrated program that encourages students to be active media consumers and gives them a deeper understanding of the role that the media plays in both shaping and reflecting culture. Through this cultural perspective, students learn that audience members are as much a part of the mass communication process as are the media producers, technologies, and industries.

New for the eighth edition, Connect Mass Communication combines contemporary course content and groundbreaking digital tools to create a unique learning environment. With Connect Mass Communication, the Introduction to Mass Communication: Media Literacy and Culture program integrates an interactive eBook with dynamic online activities and assignments that help students study more efficiently and effectively.

Medien und Bildung hängen auf vielfältige Weise zusammen, auch wenn der Medienbegriff nicht auf 'Neue' oder 'elektrische' Medien verkürzt wird. Vor dem Hintergrund der aktuellen medientechnologischen Entwicklungen und der damit zusammenhängenden kulturellen Veränderungen sind (neue) Medien zu einem 'prioritären Thema' geworden, das die Bildungswissenschaften in ihrem institutionellen und disziplinären Selbstverständnis betrifft. Dieser Band dokumentiert ein interdisziplinäres Diskussionsfeld, das von der Philosophie und Soziologie über die Kunst-, Medien- und Kulturwissenschaften bis zur Informatik reicht und den Raum für ein breit angelegtes Nachdenken über pädagogisch-praktische wie bildungstheoretische Implikationen des medienkulturellen Wandels im Rahmen einer globalisierenden 'Wissensgesellschaft' öffnet.

In this book, Ed Madison—journalist, producer/director, and innovative educator—provides specific strategies to help teachers use journalistic learning to achieve positive outcomes that engage students in new ways. Journalistic learning is a teaching approach that borrows techniques from the journalism profession to better instruct students in research, reading, and writing in language arts and the social sciences classes. Drawing from extensive fieldwork in schools across the United States, Madison demonstrates how this approach is uniquely aligned with Common Core State Standards that call for more emphasis on nonfiction texts and digital literacy skills. Centered on research and writing projects that will yield publishable student writing, chapters demonstrate how this approach works across contexts and benefits a broad range of students from diverse backgrounds. The text also explores new and affordable approaches to teacher training. Book Features: Shows ELA teachers how to better engage students in reading and writing by tapping into their interests. Offers effective and affordable strategies that are aligned with the CCSS. Explores digital literacy and diversity, providing tangible strategies for bridging the achievement and technology gap. Includes links to curricular resources, student videos, technology tips, and more. “Authentic, meaningful, and passion-driven, Ed Madison masterfully demonstrates the power of journalism as an engaging learning experience. This book is a thoughtful and practical guide to implementing journalistic learning in schools.” —Yong Zhao, elected fellow, International Academy For Education, author of World Class Learners “Ed Madison explains why the journalistic methods of verifying and clarifying information can motivate students to learn nearly anything. His well-sourced book is full of the practical exercises and technology tips that can set free the power of journalistic learning. A must-read for anyone who cares about education.” —Eric Newton, Innovation Chief, Cronkite School of Journalism, Arizona State University, author, Searchlights and Sunglasses: Field Notes from the Digital Age of Journalism “Dr. Madison’s important book takes us beyond the buzz to the substance and power of engagement through journalistic learning. Grounded in research and practice, he provides insight and guidance to educators struggling to make the world of narrative expression important and relevant to today’s students.” —Jason Ohler, author of many books, articles and web resources devoted to media and digital literacy “Teaching journalism principles has never been more necessary and more integral to the work of all teachers. Ed Madison has spent time with leaders in journalism education and provides a great synthesis of ideas from the front lines. Anyone who loves teaching nonfiction reading and writing across media will love this book.” —William Kist, associate professor, Kent State University “Ed Madison provides teachers with tangible strategies for using journalism to meet new standards, while inspiring students to take ownership of their education.” —Linda Darling-Hammond, Stanford University, author, The Flat World and Education

In a media rich world, mass communication is all around us, from CNN, to your morning commute radio show, to Twitter. Introduction to Mass Communication: Media Literacy and Culture personalizes learning for every student, no matter whom they are or where they are, by giving them a deeper understanding of the role that media plays in both shaping and reflecting culture, while also helping them understand their role in society through that process. Introduction to Mass Communication: Media Literacy and Culture is an integrated program that encourages students to be active media consumers and gives them a deeper understanding of the role that the media play in both shaping and reflecting culture. Through this cultural perspective, students learn that audience members are as much a part of the mass communication process as are the media producers, technologies, and industries. This was the first, and remains the only, university-level program to make media literacy central to its approach, and given recent national and global turmoil, its emphasis on media use and democracy could not be more timely. The new edition maintains its commitment to enhancing students’ critical thinking and media literacy skills. As in recent editions, chapters offer sections on smartphones, tablets, and social networking sites that discuss the impact of these technologies specific to the medium at hand. However, Chapter 10, now titled “The Internet and Social Media,” has undergone a major revision designed to focus greater attention on social media as a mass communication technology in its own right. Additionally, the new 9th edition will also feature SmartBook, the first and only adaptive reading experience, that highlights content based on what the individual student knows and doesn’t know, and provides focused help at that moment in need through targeted learning resources (including videos, animations, and other interactivities). SmartBook’s intuitive technology optimizes student study time by creating a personalized learning path for improved course performance.

Eine Reise ins Herz der amerikanischen Rechten

In vielen westlichen Ländern sind rechte, nationalistische Bewegungen auf dem Vormarsch. Wie ist es dazu gekommen? Arlie Russell Hochschild reiste ins Herz der amerikanischen Rechten, nach Louisiana, und suchte fünf Jahre lang das Gespräch mit ihren Landsleuten. Sie traf auf frustrierte Menschen, deren "Amerikanischer Traum" geplatzt ist; Menschen, die sich abgehängt fühlen, den Staat hassen und sich der rechtspopulistischen Tea-Party-Bewegung angeschlossen haben. Hochschild zeigt eine beunruhigende Entwicklung auf, die auch in Europa längst begonnen hat. Hochschilds Reportage ist nicht nur eine erhellende Deutung einer gespaltenen Gesellschaft, sondern auch ein bewegendes Stück Literatur. "Jeder, der das moderne Amerika verstehen möchte, sollte dieses faszinierende Buch lesen." Robert Reich "Ein kluges, respektvolles und fesselndes Buch." New York Times Book Review "Eine anrührende, warmherzige und souverän geschriebene, ungemein gut lesbare teilnehmende Beobachtung. ... Wer ihr Buch liest, versteht die Wähler Trumps, weil sie auf Augenhöhe mit ihnen und nicht über sie spricht." FAZ
