Television, video games, and on-line media are now a fact of life for our children, whose developing minds and bodies are particularly vulnerable to their power. This vulnerability has sparked a national debate, and parents and educators have joined forces to address the benefits and drawbacks of visual media. In Screen Smarts, Gloria DeGaetano, a nationally recognized expert on mass media and children, argues that while these technologies are often overused, when used consciously and purposefully, they can not only support children's development but enhance it as well. This book addresses all the vital media-related issues for children through the age of fourteen and offers proactive strategies for supporting children's optimal development in a media age. It is sure to be the definitive sourcebook on media literacy for a long time to come.

Media literacy--the intentional, evaluative, and knowledgeable use of visual media--transforms TV's noisy flash into a learning experience for children of all ages. Former teacher DeGaetano and former TV producer Bander carefully articulate the impact of television on children's physical, mental, and emotional development. They review in detail the effects of screen violence, the effectiveness of screen advertising, and the illusory stereotypes presented in television programs. Each chapter proposes skills, activities, and techniques for counteracting negative outcomes and transforming media viewing into an opportunity for analysis, discussion, and learning. A final chapter presents additional enjoyable yet educational activities, and a lengthy appendix lists a broad array of available resources. Both children and parents may benefit from this rich, detailed, and practical handbook to one of the major social forces of our times. Kathryn Carpenter
