Media Literacy Embedded in New P21 Curriculum Maps

Media Literacy is embedded in the new Science & Geography curriculum maps released today by P21 at NECC. According to the press release: "The 21st Century Skills and Science and Geography Maps demonstrate how the integration of 21st century skills into science and geography classes support teaching and prepare students to become effective and productive citizens."

Note: the press release, surprisingly does not provide links to these documents, and finding them on the P21C website is like looking for a needle in a haystack. (I guess they don't care if anyone actually finds these documents) Here are the pertinent URLS:
