*Abstract:  This thesis is a product of a contextual reflection about the
major societal issues that require an appropriate theological diagnosis and
redress. Education is a foundation of all human development and it is a
template on which human integral formation is based. This project intends
to highlight the desirable approaches in the field of Media Literacy
Education regarding pedagogy. The thesis explores the moral pedagogical
approach in teaching media literacy mostly in high schools. It covers a
brief historical background of media literacy through the admonitions and
teachings of Popes, and the efforts of some organizations like UNESCO.
After conducting surveys in high schools in Uganda and here in the Quezon
(Philippines), the researcher realized that schools use different
approaches to teach media literacy but the express a need for the moral
aspect to be included. The author was able to look at the curricula and
lesson plans and realized that much emphasis is put in equipping students
with skill competencies in the job market. The researcher highlights some
areas where due attention is desired, proposing virtue ethics to be
integrated with Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm in teaching and learning in
media literacy. This work will benefit schools, curriculum developers,
parents, non-government organizations dealing with education and teacher
training colleges.  It can also be used in parish catechetical programs. *
