Please share this success with me. Talk to the teachers at your school about the importance of media literacy. Many teachers recognize the need, but it’s tough for them to find time in class during this era of standardized tests. We can support teachers by letting the school administration know that we consider media literacy education a priority.
Then tell your teachers about the terrific resources at MEF. There are many more documentaries available there, especially for older students. Teachers at all levels can also find resources at the Media Awareness Network and the Media Literacy Project.
