Introduction & Media Literacy
I am new to the blog, so I don't know if anyone has introduced the topic of "media literacy" as part of the multi-literacies all students (and teachers) should know. I operate the Media Literacy Clearinghouse website (http://www.frankwbaker.com) and I started it as a way of encouraging teachers to try teaching media literacy. It is also a venue for me to post resources, especially books--since most school libraries have no books for students or teachers about media or media literacy. I'd love to hear from those who HAVE used the site, especially what you've used. And if you have developed your own "media literacy" lesson plan, I would be happy to post it to my site.
