Includes training and full curriculum:
Through the lens of violence prevention, this course will provide you with the tools and knowledge to implement a media literacy curriculum in the upper elementary classroom.
The evidenced based curriculum includes 12 integrated lessons, divided into three units: media and violence/ bullying, media and tobacco/alcohol, media and food choices. While the evaluated effects of the 12 lessons are cumulative, units can be taught independently by guidance, health, library/media, and classroom teachers, as well as multidisciplinary teams.
Cost includes: 8 hours of self-paced online training including activities, detailed full curriculum with media, handouts, interactive discussion forums staffed by Media Power Youth’s education team, and ongoing support.
Media Literacy for Safe and Healthy Choices has demonstrated evidence of helping children significantly increase understanding that media and advertising:
Have a strong effect on what people think and do.
Make violence seem less harmful than in real life.
Make smoking & drinking alcohol seem less harmful.
Influences amount/types of snacks kids eat drink.
Make snacks seem more attractive & healthier than they really are.
*Although the curriculum can be purchased separately, training for implementation of Media Literacy for Safe & Healthy Choices, is required for fidelity to the curriculum’s evidence based status on Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the National Registry of Evidence Based Programs and Practices (NREPP). www.nrepp.samhsa
