The media can no longer be left at the classroom
door. Our definition of literacy must be
expanded to include media literacy. Our young
people must develop the habits of inquiry and
the skills of expression they need to become
critical thinkers and effective communicators
in today’s media-rich environment.
Here you will find a wide variety of resources
including lesson plans and activities that can
be adapted to your particular situation. You will
also find numerous media resources that can
be used to assemble your own collection of
media samples for current or future use.
