Integrating Media Literacy and Critical Thinking

Monday, November 6, 2017 - 12:00-1:00 pm PST

How can you fit media literacy into the curriculum when it is already so packed? How can you use media analysis to teach core content and standards while also teaching critical media literacy skills?

In this edWebinar discover how you can help students grapple with these topics in a thoughtful, honest and civil way that encourages thinking about their own biases. Veteran teacher and media literacy trainer Chris Sperry will engage participants in analyzing classroom models of inquiry-based media analysis to explore pedagogy and practice. He will present classroom-ready strategies and free online resources from Project Look Sharp—applicable to all grade levels and subject areas—for integrating constructivist media decoding activities into your curriculum.

There will be time to ask Chris your questions after his presentation. This edWebinar is geared towards teachers, administrators, and library media specialists at the K-12 level. Join us to learn how to integrate media literacy and critical thinking into your curriculum!
