Critical Media Literacy

The Fourth R team has developed free lesson plans on Critical Media Literacy for all elementary and secondary students and parents and on Representations of Youth in Media for youth ages 13-16.  Students taught to approach media from a critical perspective understand that all media are constructions and that they are not neutral. Media literate students are able to question the media they consume – they ask questions about the author’s intent, the images used, how content represents diverse populations and relationships, and what effects those elements may have on themselves and those around them.
