NCSS Policy Statement on Media Literacy
Media educator Jeff Share, a past member of the NCTE Commission on Media, has asked me to share this: The National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) has recently published a new position statement on media literacy. It is a very important move that NCSS has both recognized and recommended media literacy be taught as part of social studies instruction. The statement, which Jeff helped write, can be found here. Please consider sharing this message with those you know who would be interested.
