About the Author

Cary Bazalgette is a freelance researcher, writer and consultant specializing in media education development; she is Chair of the Media Education Association and a member of the European Commission's Media Literacy Experts' Group.

'All primary teachers, English managers, advisors and consultants should read this book. Written in short, accessible chapters, it presents clearly the vital role of media studies in 21st century education. Rooted in best practice, a range of practitioner researchers, advisors and experienced media teachers present a compelling case for media education not just as an 'add on' to current literacy teaching, but as an integral part of language and communication in its own right' - English 4-11 Magazine 'Teaching Media in Primary Schools is not just readable and accessible- it's an enjoyable and informative text. This book is timely, expertly written, practical and insightful. I would go as far as to say that if this book is widely read in the sector, then there will no longer be just small pockets of sound practice in primary schools. Rather, this book will contribute to a more cohesive approach to media teaching in primary schools. It is the foremost practical guide in media education of its kind, and I would very much recommend this as essential reading for all primary school teachers and student teachers' -
