Meaningful Lessons on Media Literacy

All teachers know that finding material for lesson plans on social issues can be very difficult.  Finding relevant, up-to-date research on such topic such as media literacy is hard enough, but creating meaningful lessons from it can be harder still.  The Centre for Research & Education on Violence Against Women and Children promotes the development of community- centered, action research on violence against women and children.  One of the projects that the centre has coordinated is a series of lessons on critical media literacy.  These lessons can be perused and downloaded for free here.  Lessons for both elementary and secondary school classes are available.

These are well-written lesson plans geared for specific levels and courses, however the can easily be tweaked to fit a wide range of educational uses.

The Centre’s role is to facilitate the cooperation of individuals, groups and institutions representing the diversity of the community to pursue research questions and training opportunities to understand and prevent abuse.

It serves local, national and international communities by producing useful information and tools to assist in the daily work against violence toward women and children.
