Creating Critical Viewers was designed to develop awareness and skill so that young people can decode media messages and more fully grasp the cause of television’s impact. The Center for Excellence in Media Literacy has made this curriculum available for download.
Meant to accompany the student workbook, The Center for Excellence website also has a set of teacher materials providing instructions, notes and recommendations for each section.
The Center for Excellence website has a student guide which through a series of activities introduces them to skills that will enable them to think critically about media. Many terms, techniques, and concepts will be explored.
Accessible online are slideshows of seminars from the Media Education Lab’s faculty, who are active scholars, researchers and advocates for media literacy.
Part of a comprehensive three-volume curriculum, The Media Education Lab provides an elementary-level lesson plan to introduce children to some basic ideas in media literacy.
The website has a Pop Studio, an online creative play experience for girls designed to promote media literacy. It strengthens critical thinking skills about television, music, magazines and online media directed at girls 9-14. There is a corresponding website available for teachers to enhance the digital learning experience.
