Webinar: Media Literacy in High School, Focus on Civic Education – Dec 13

Posted by Media Education Lab on November 29, 2022

Parents, teachers, students, educators, school leaders, college faculty, researchers, media professionals, and community activists are invited to join us for a webinar series that explores the development of media literacy competencies across the lifespan, from birth to old age. Each session will include a featured speaker and time for small group discussion and dialogue.


In high school, students learn to deconstruct media messages and benefit from access to scaffolding and frameworks to build their critical thinking skills. Students also are discovering their creative capacities as media makers and gain confidence in self-expression when they have authentic audiences who encounter their multimedia creative work. Increasingly, media literacy competencies of analyzing and creating media are components of civic education, where through discussions of news, journalism, and controversial issues, students learn to participate in the public sphere. But what are the barriers that limit how students can exercise these competencies in their increasingly polarized communities?
