Course Details
Course Description:

We live in an age of information overload. With new technology being invented every day, people obtain news and information from a wide variety of sources. However, as most adults know and understand, the information that is printed or shared in the media isn't always true or accurate. In this course, participants will learn creative and authentic ways to teach students how to obtain, analyze, and question information sources. This course will allow participants to develop meaningful lessons, activities, and resources to teach students more about information sources and media literacy. Participants will research and learn how to use different analysis tools in their classrooms to make students more analytical readers and more critical consumers of information. The activities, lessons, and resources gathered in this course will help improve reading, writing, and listening skills in the classroom.
