Professor Rick Peltz-Steele has authored a chapter in a new book, The Media Method: Teaching Law with Popular Culture.
Just out from Carolina Academic Press (CAP), The Media Method talks about the integration of non-legal materials, especially audiovisual elements, into the law school classroom. Edited by Louisiana State University Law Professor Christine A. Corcos, an expert in popular culture and the law, the book comprises contributions from law professors in the United States, Canada, and Australia.
Professor Peltz-Steele’s chapter talks specifically about using popular culture as a teaching aid in the 1L Torts class.
“Students today view the world relative to its representations in digital media,” Peltz-Steele wrote in the book. “Today’s students benefit from the examination and analysis of challenging subject matter in the real world relative to its digital imaginings.”
Law teachers ordering the book from CAP in 2019 can receive 25% off with a discount code available on Peltz-Steele’s blog, The Savory Tort. Peltz-Steele is co-author, with Northwestern University Law Professor Marshall Shapo, of the casebook in 1L Torts, Tort and Injury Law, also published by CAP.
