Critical Thinking & Media Literacy @ The Middle Grades

Media educator David Considine contributes to the current issue of NMSA's Middle Ground (Teaching 21st Century Skills) with a piece advocating for media literacy in the middle grades. Excerpt: "Teaching students to critically analyze and evaluate advertising provides them with the skills to be competent consumers—a skill they will use for the rest of their lives, whether making decisions about their next bag of potato chips or the next president of the United States." (Article available to NMSA members)
