dc.description.abstract This discussion of media education in the United States is composed of two parts. The first is the thesis itself, in which the history of the media education movement in the U.S. is traced from it's infancy up until the present day. Specific examples of theories developed inside the U.S. are provided along with the media education theories developed abroad that have impacted efforts within this country, plus, the most recent definition of media literacy. It concludes with a discussion of the importance of media education and the hurdles that advocates will likely face as they fight for this type of education in U.S. schools. The second part is an appendix that consists of activities based on the inquiry model of active viewer media education. It serves as a basis for a beginning discussion in media education and helps to illustrate exactly what the inquiry based model is all about.
