Identify and describe the two models of media literacy.
The two models of media literacy are the linear model and the cultural model. The linear model is the traditional approach to interpreting media content, where mass communication follows an order: senders deliver messages through a mass media channel to large groups of receivers. The cultural model of media literacy views media content as part of the culture. The media helps us to make sense of daily life and to articulate our values as culture forms. The cultural approach to studying the media critically analyzes media content, the ways in which audiences interpret the content and the circumstances of how the media produce such content.
