A Little Bit of Media Analysis

McAndrew Books

Written for Politics and Society Leaving Cert students, “A Little Bit Of Media Analysis” is designed to demystify the sometimes-abstract world of ‘New and Traditional’ media, a key component of Learning Outcome 2.6 of the P&S subject.
This topic proves challenging for students because the rapidly changing ‘Media Landscape’ makes reliable, up-to-date information hard to identify and scrutinise.
This book is a ‘classroom-ready’ guide, walking students through the key terminology and theories of the topic, offering “Case Studies” with contrasting interpretations to help students develop their own opinions. The ‘Exam Focus’ section links those key concepts to Data-Based and essay questions.
