Media Literacy

You'll never watch TV the same way again.

If you're reading this, you're literate. Congratulations! But are you media literate? Can you read TV, ads, music, and Facebook posts as well as you read everything else?

In this lightning-fast fifteen-lesson course, we'll break down the main topics in Media Literacy: critical media consumption, bias, intellectual property, and basic communications theory. Oh, and because we love to have standards, the course has been designed to meet the standards for the National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE). You're welcome.
