Topic: Print Literacy in Children's TV

10-second review: “Analyzes instances of portrayals of print-literacy in top ten viewed programs for children ages 2-5. Finds few instances of print literacy…and few positive messages about print literacy.”

Title: “Portrayals of Print Literacy in Children’s Television Programming.” AM Moses and NK Duke. Journal of Literacy Research, 40, 251-289, 2008.

Comment: Interesting. Hard to dramatize the act of reading on TV. Also hard to believe that literacy is not emphasized on Sesame Street. RayS.
