What is Labragirl?



1. Labragirl is a teacher PD program.

The goal of Labragirl's CCSS aligned media literacy PD program is to help students gain an increased depth of knowledge and the ability to engage with the world. Our PD program does this by integrating media literacy as a language and perspective (not an art form or technology use) into K-12 language arts, social studies, history, English, science, and humanities curricula. 

 

2. LABRAGIRL IS A PERSPECTIVE.


Labragirl Film Project believes media literacy and critical thinking skills are essential for modern students. In a world saturated with media images, students can only be considered fully literate if they can:

  • Read images;Director of Media Literacy Education Laurie Chin Sayres delivers a PD program to a K-8 charter school.Director of Media Literacy Education Laurie Chin Sayres delivers a PD program to a K-8 charter school.
  • Understand the grammar of moving images;
  • See and analyze our universal visual language; and
  • Engage in critical thinking conversations about media images.

To help students shift from unconsciously consuming moving images to engaging with the world around them, Labragirl Film Project works with teachers across the country to integrate these media literacy skills and conversations into K-12 classrooms.

 

3. LABRAGIRL IS A MOVEMENT.

When teachers have the flexibility to be creative, play to their strengths, and explore their teaching interests, the classroom possibilities and student success strategies are endless. Labragirl works one on one with individual schools and school districts to help teachers regain creativity in an increasingly standardized education system. Integrating media literacy as a language and perspective (not an art form or technology use) allows teachers to be creative and use their expertise while at the same time helping students gain CCSS proficiency, essential 21st century critical thinking skills, and an increased depth of learning.
