ABSTRACT
The article discusses the importance of media-education courses as media reflects the society and groups of people. One of the ways to sensitize students to the grammar and syntax of film and television and turn them into critical viewers is to have them learn how to tell their own stories. Students should be encouraged to develop their own modes of criticism and interpretation. Children need help in understanding the media in their most impressionable years. The nation's future voters and leaders should be encouraged to take media seriously, from where media messages come from and why messages are presented as they are and to what effect.
