The Global Media Monitoring Project, GMMP offers a pedagogic tool for discussing gender representation but also other issues related to news agendas. It can be used to analyze a specific news week in one medium or to compare different media – say, main TV news with Twitter or a national daily with a local one. Previous reports offer possibilities for longitudinal and global comparisons. The coding kit and instructions are open access and offer easier and more extensive options for quantitative and qualitative content analysis.
The GMMP team has collected a list of free resources for teaching that they and their partners offer, available here. See also below for other teaching resources.
In short, for teaching purposes, you can make the GMMP your own by modifying it to suit your topic. The methods are straightforward, and can be eye-opening.
