In planning lessons for my students on a specific unit, I did just that! I created a concept map to help me visualize what the Language strand of Media Literacy entails. At first I found it very overwhelming to address all the aspects of this strand. My concept map has helped me streamline my thoughts and help me organize how I want to deliver the program. Today, I am providing you my concept map. In my next couple of posts, I will provide examples of classroom activities to address these key concepts for each heading.
Take this concept map, and utilize it for an introduction, or a summary of what Media Literacy is. Use it for yourself or print it for your students. You can use it as a poster as well!
Stay tuned for ideas on how you can address these key concepts in your media literacy lessons.
