Through the lens of violence prevention, this course will provide you with the tools and knowledge to implement a media literacy curriculum in the elementary classroom and facilitate informed, practical conversations about media influence on attitudes and behaviors. With a strong focus on healthy decision making through critical thinking, analysis and media deconstruction, you will gain the media literacy skills to help your students become more thoughtful consumers and producers of media content choices.
The evidenced based curriculum includes 12 integrated lessons, divided into three units: media and violence/ bullying, media and tobacco/alcohol, media and food choices. While the evaluated effects of the 12 lessons are cumulative, units can be taught independently by guidance, health, library/media, and classroom teachers, as well as multidisciplinary teams.
Cost includes: 8 hours of self-paced online training including activities, detailed curriculum with media, handouts, interactive discussion forums staffed by Media Power Youth’s education team, and ongoing support. Full curriculum
