Media Literacy in the Secondary Classroom – Grades 6-12

Date:  November 2, 2017

Time:  9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Registration Fee:  $50

Location:  WRESA

We live in a media saturated world and it is a big part of our students’ daily lives. Whether they are posting on social media, watching a YouTube video, playing a video game or reading a magazine, they are being influenced by the images they see and the ideas presented. This 6-12 workshop will focus on Media Literacy in classroom. Participants will learn how to:

  • Teach students to ask the right questions and think critically to become wise consumers of media.
  • Guide students to deconstruct media using the Center for Media Literacy Framework.
  • Implement lessons in which students create media instead of consuming it.
  • Leave with ready-made lessons to use in your classroom tomorrow.

Join Kendra Cameron Jarvis, Buncombe County Schools Digital Learning Facilitator, for a workshop to learn how teachers can help students effectively filter media messages. We will be using technology, so bring your laptop. This class could count for content. For more information, contact April at or 828.774.5681, ext. 20.  Contact Hours:  5
