Applying Critical Thinking to Modern Media is the only book that teaches critical thinking skills by applying them to the consumption of modern media. Author Lewis Vaughn emphasizes the habits of mind that are prerequisites for making sense of today's media landscape--reasonable skepticism, metacognition, overview perspective, openness, intellectual humility, and responsibility--and develops these dispositions by showing students how to apply critical thinking skills to the creation and evaluation of media messages of all kinds. Through active engagement with this vitally important area, Applying Critical Thinking to Modern Media prepares students to be independent and intelligent consumers of the information that they encounter in their daily lives.
