  • Not sure of how media literacy differs from film literature, film studies, or film production? 
  • Do you want to help students move from unconsciously consuming media to thinking critically about moving images?
  • Do you want to exercise your creativity within the CCSS system? 
  • Are you a history teacher who wants to help your students see the direct applicability of history to daily life?

Labragirl's film literacy teacher professional development workshops programs provide teachers with tools to help students: 

            • Move from passively consuming images to thinking critically about moving images;
            • Successfully navigate an increasingly media saturated world;
            • Engage in sophisticated conversation about how moving images shape our understanding of the past; and
            • Integrate classroom learning with real-life experiences.

 


Bring Media Literacy into Your School With a Labragirl Film Project Professional Development Program

 

"Moving from consumption to thinking critically is a key point because our society is saturated with moving images and every day that's increasing and moving towards super saturation.  So, film really plays a significant role in shaping the way we see the world and to help students become aware of that will not only engage them in the classroom, but also help them as they move throughout the world."
