Rx for an Infodemic: Developing Habits of Media Literacy and Critical Thinking Across the Curriculum
A dynamic half-day workshop that will give librarians the inspiration, theory, models and resources for integrating critical thinking about all media messages into your work with students and teachers through synchronous, asynchronous and face-to-face instruction.
After looking at the role of media in presidential elections, the roots of our current information crisis, and research into how students assess truth claims in the media, we will work with a practical methodology for teaching habits of questioning and metacognition.
We will review resources including 500+ lessons for integrating constructivist media decoding into diverse subject areas at all grade levels.
The presenters, Cyndy Scheibe and Chris Sperry, are the founders of “Project Look Sharp” and global leaders in media literacy integration into K-12 education.
