ITEM: Free Training and Curriculum for Media Literacy
Registration is still open for Media Power Youth's final training of the school year for NH educators seeking to prevent youth violence through media literacy education. This training is funded through an initiative of NH Governor Maggie Hassan and the Office of the NH Attorney General.
This FREE and highly engaging training will be held May 22 at Health Trust NH, 25 Triangle Park Drive, Concord, NH from 9:00am - 4:00pm. All school professionals attending training will receive 8 professional development hours, and a copy of our evidence based curriculum, Media Literacy for Safe and Healthy Choices, at no cost.
Designed to be delivered by upper elementary school staff, the program has a strong focus on literacy, discussion, analysis, reflection and critical thinking skills. Lessons include media examples and hands-on creation of positive media. The curriculum also includes supplemental activities to build media literacy skills across multiple content areas. Program objectives are aligned with Common Core, and meet national and state learning standards in multiple disciplines.
