Presentation Description

It’s time to update yesterday’s literacy skills for today’s students. This highly-adaptable lesson blurs the line between how students live and how students learn by utilizing contemporary advertisements from multiple media to teach critical literacy skills. Making students aware of the methods and choices behind a text helps them develop empowering media and literacy skills; asking them to create their own texts for an authentic audience refines those skills and makes the lesson relevant in the present and for the future.
