Get Them Thinking! Use Media Literacy to Prepare Students for State Assessments

Do you want to merge media literacy strategies into all K-12 curricula?
This practical and usable guide will help teachers and media specialists add critical thinking about media messages to all subject areas. This stand-alone resource has a unique approach to improve state assessment scores (such as CSAP).

The United States is the foremost producer of media in the world, and, with this tool, educators can infuse critical thinking and a better understanding about our digital society into the K-12 curriculum. The book is filled with background information, "authentic task" activities, reproducible pages, and includes an appendix listing media literacy resources and organizations.

 Cost: $39.95 plus $3 shipping

 

"What a great idea! A coloring book to get kids and their parents (or teachers) talking together about the ways kids experience today's media world and what meaning they're making of it. The earlier we help children to start thinking about what they're watching and hearing, the more savvy and discerning they'll be as they grow" Elizabeth Thoman, Founder, Center For Media Literacy, Los Angeles, CA

Teachers are welcome to copy the coloring pages from this book for classroom use. This allows for media education of large numbers of children with the purchase of each book. $15 never went so far!

The media surround each of us every day with a variety of information and entertainment options.  To keep children, teenagers, and even adults from being manipulated by the highly motivated and skillful media makers, adult leaders must teach them to be media literate.  The goal of Media Alert! is to install 50 basic concepts by providing easy-to-use ideas for teachers, parents, grandparents, pastors, and youth leaders in general. Successful completion of the learning activities will enable participants to be critical thinkers about the content and format of media messages, their marketing and distribution, and their significant impacts.  $15.00
