This book discusses the various definitions of media and guides readers through the process of writing about them. How to Write about the Media covers the process of writing research papers and professional reports, beginning with the selection of a topic and ending with the submission of the final draft. This writing process includes the development and application of research skills. Professional, thoughtful writing about the media demands discipline in how information is found, evaluated, organized, and presented in a well-written research paper or report. How to Write about the Media also offers a section on style, basic grammar, and punctuation; sample pages formatted in APA, MLA, and Chicago styles can also be found in the book. Tips for ESL (English as a Second Language) writers, along with a checklist writers can use before submitting their final drafts, are also included.
