Crash Course Media Literacy

Launched in February 2018, Crash Course Media Literacy is one of the newest additions to the popular YouTube series launched by vlogging brothers John and Hank Green. This recent series is hosted by veteran vlogger and radio host Jay Smooth and addresses a range of topics that touch on a number of academic disciplines. As Jay Smooth notes in the first episode of this series, "[a]s a field of study, media literacy comprises and overlaps many different theories and subjects from critical thinking and psychology to linguistics and ethics in technology." Individual episodes in this series address issues including the history of print journalism, the work of Marshall McLuhan, confirmation bias, advertising, and disinformation. This series may be of interest to social studies, journalism, and psychology instructors, as well as librarians.
