A Deeper Sense of Literacy is the first book to suggest that media literacy is both a content area and an approach to teaching that can be integrated into any subject area. It combines theory and practical application in a way that addresses the most important questions related to media literacy in education today: what is it, why is it important, how can you teach it across a wide range of curriculum areas and grade levels, and does it work? Rather than focusing on how to teach media literacy, Scheibe and Rogow focus on actually using media literacy to teach lessons across the content areas.
