How to Teach Media Literacy? Videos and Lesson Plans from Media Smarts

How to Teach Media Literacy? Videos and Lesson Plans from Media Smarts | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

"Media educators base their teaching on key concepts of media literacy, which provide an effective foundation for examining mass media and popular culture. These key concepts act as filters that any media text has to go through in order for us to respond."

How to Teach Media Literacy? Videos and Lesson Plans from Media Smarts

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 5, 2014 10:20 PM

Do you teach media literacy? Do you think we should teach students in upper elementary and middle school the concepts of media literacy?  Media Smarts (out of Canada) with the assistance of Companies Committed to Children, has launched a new website, Media Literacy 101.

What will you find? Six short videos that will engage students as they learn about media literacy as well as lesson plans that include an overview, learning outcomes, preparation and materials, key concepts and an optional worksheet. The areas covered include:

* What is media anyway

* Media are constructions

* Audiences negotiate media

* Media have commercial impacts

* Media have social and political implications

* Each media has a unique aesthetic form

These lessons are geared for students from about Grade 5 - 8, but make sure you review them to determine if they will work with your students. If you believe that your students need to become more media savvy this is website is worth exploring.

Top 10 Websites for Teaching | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Using grammar correctly could be challenging may be not for those who are English native speaker, but surely for those who learn English from scratch. English language and its difficulties can be very much puzzling. Although, a dictionary or software can assist learners but it cannot give accurate answer. In fact, word processing programs are not very much effective in correcting grammar errors completely.
