The Media (series)

Teens & The Media
The Gallup Youth Survey: Major Issues & Trends
Roger E. Hernandez    Mason Crest Publishers  ISBN: 1-59084-874-8
This text provides middle school students with a roundup of current information, primarily Gallup surveys, about the role of media ( Internet, Music, Newspapers, Magazines) in their lives. The book touches on some timely topics such as blogs and convergence. Also included here is information not from Gallup, but from other sources such as Jupiter Media; the Parents Television Council, etc. I was curious why the author never mentioned “multi-tasking” here because that is what teens are doing. What this book is missing are some critical thinking/media literacy questions and activities to get young people to consider the role media plays in their lives. It also doesn’t mention the importance of media activism or simply turning off the media.

Feed, M.T. Anderson (National Book Award Finalist)
Candlewick Press, ISBN: 0763617261
Review:   This brilliantly ironic satire is set in a future world where television and computers are connected directly into people’s brains when they are babies. The result is a chillingly recognizable consumer society where empty-headed kids are driven by fashion and shopping and the avid pursuit of silly entertainment–even on trips to Mars and the moon–and by constant customized murmurs in their brains of encouragement to buy, buy, buy.
Recommended ages 14+
