Stella Chung

While teaching English in South Korea, I quickly learned that most of my students’ exposure to American culture was through popular music, television, and film. It was important for me to ensure that my students did not accept the images on their screens and the fragments of audio playing in their ears as truth, but as created messages that can be deciphered and questioned. The Critical Media Project provided me with relevant and current media examples that engaged students around conversations of gender, age, and race that not only encouraged students to question the media they saw but to also create their own empowering messages.
