ANALYSIS OF REPRESENTATIVE STRUCTURED PROGRAMS OF "CRITICAL VIEWING SKILLS" EDUCATION
Part II reports dominant patterns as well as specific details of selected structured programs of media literacy that include training in television "critical viewing skills."
Chapter 4 outlines general characteristics of major projects, drawing on worldwide questionnaire surveys made in the early and middle 1980s.
Specific projects of scope and significance are selected for detailed analysis in the next six chapters. Chapter 5 studies four coordinated national projects funded by the United States government. Chapter 6 explores systematic, formal instruction in school districts -- one in Australia and the rest in the United States. Chapter 7 analyzes projects by individuals who worked along or in collaboration with other agencies or organizations -- all of them in the United States. Chapter 8 recounts activities by nongovernmental national organizations in the United States. Chapter 9 reviews projects mounted by private companies in the United States and United Kingdom, including broadcasting companies in both countries. And chapter 10 offers material from institution-related programs in formal education from the United Kingdom (including Wales and Scotland), France, the Netherlands, Canada, four Latin American countries, and worldwide under the auspices of UNDA/UNESCO.
