We live in an media saturated world. More specifically, advertising permeates our everyday lives in both obvious and covert ways. Through carefully packaged messages, advertising sells products, lifestyles, beliefs, and overconsumption. As consumers, we need to develop critical thinking and viewing skills to unravel these messages. At the end of this short course, you should be able to identify stealth and persuasive advertising techniques.
We'll explore how to examine, unpack, and analyze a piece of literature written for young readers. We'll talk about picture books, early readers, cartoons, and a couple of contemporary films. See what it is like to jump into a college level class on popular culture. Great for people interested in becoming a teacher or for those just wanting to know more about the world of children's literature.
