This paper attempts to define some critical criteria for evaluating the relationship between what is regarded as "art" and "entertainment" in American mass media by way of presenting a model for classroom discussion. Although this dialectic germinated from a college seminar, the author contends that such a model could and should be used by teachers of many subjects at virtually all levels of education to help heighten the critical skills and judgments of children as they attend to the plethora of media messages in their daily out-of-school lives.
