This qualitative study followed a group of classroom teachers as they explored the instructional possibilites of teaching with and about multimedia and popular culture, and their efforts to integrate critical multimedia literacy into their teaching. Throughout the semester, the teachers practiced critiquing and incorporating multiple media such as film, television, and digital technologies into their teaching. The semester-long research project documented some of the benefits and challenges of incorporating popular culture, mass media, and critical literacy into content area classes. Recommendations on how to integrate critical inquiry and media literacy into content area instruction are included.
