Media Literacy

We have not been able to offer our own Media Literacy course in a couple of years, but those skills are invaluable for students dealing with the media glut technology offers. If your course deals with evaluating and using sources, critiquing positions or arguments, or other uses of media, you may want to integrate some of those skills into your curriculum. If you don't know where to start, here are some things to get you going:

Crash Course now has a Media Literacy course that provides YouTube videos covering its content, packaged in a course-like structure.

Ithaca College's Project Look Sharp is a "media literacy initiative of Ithaca College that develops and provides lesson plans, media materials, training, and support for the effective integration of media literacy with critical thinking into classroom curricula."

The Center for Media Literacy also has both developed and gathered numerous resources to help inform parents and teachers and to teach skills to students.
