Everybody thinks that they cannot be fooled: they're immune to advertising, propaganda, fake news, and the perils of social media. Everybody is mistaken. Cracking the Media Literacy Code gives students the tools they need to separate fact from fiction, and manipulation from information.

Understanding Advertising: Nobody believes they are influenced by advertising, but everybody is wrong about that. Advertising assaults us daily, on tv, on the internet, on the streets of our cities; everywhere we look and even when we don't think we're looking. Easy-to-understand text, simple infographics, and lots of examples helps kids learn how to crack the code of advertising and learn how to use their brains to decide what to buy rather than being manipulated into wanting things they don't need.

Understanding the News: It is more and more apparent that it is hard to tell the difference between real and fake news. If teachers flunk tests about it, how can they teach their students to understand what's what? Fake and real news items are thrown at us daily, on tv, on the internet, on the streets of our cities; everywhere we look and even when we don't think we're looking. Easy-to-understand text, simple infographics, quizzes, and lots of examples helps kids learn how to crack the code of real vs. fake news.

Understanding Propaganda: Everybody believes they're immune to propaganda, but everyone is wrong about that. Propaganda assaults us daily, on tv, on the internet, on the streets of our cities; everywhere we look, and even when we don't think we're looking. Easy-to-understand text, simple infographics, and lots of examples helps kids learn how to crack the code of propaganda and learn how to use their brains to decide when they are being manipulated into believing lies presented as the truth.

Understanding Social Media: Everybody thinks they can handle social media. They're only on with their friends. Everything on social media is real. Except that it isn't. Easy-to-understand language, simple infographics, and evocative photos show kids what's real and what's fake on the various social media platforms, and how to tell the difference.
