Seven Media Literacy Lessons

October is National Information Literacy Awareness Month. While educators always teach their students how to find, access, and evaluate information, they can take a moment to remind their students what literacy means and inform them that October celebrates literacy. Media Literacy, according to the Center for Media Literacy, is ” the ability to access, analyze, evaluate and create media in a variety of forms.” Media can be in the form of newspapers, online publications, advertisements, commercials, social media platforms, and more.

In order to help students become literate in the world of media, EducationWorld has gathered a list of seven lesson plans, activities, books, and videos for teachers to use.
