For ages 8-12. Designed to help elementary school teachers develop their students' media literacy skills -- the ability to access, analyse, evaluate, and communicate information in a variety of formats -- this book offers a series of 20 thematic units that show how to integrate media literacy into their existing curricula. Each unit's lesson or activity includes a statement of the rationale behind it, specific objectives, content goals, materials, procedures, grade-appropriate adaptations, and assessment tools, which are usually student handouts. The Media-Savvy Student is developed around student-centred teaching, inquiry-based education, problem solving in cooperative learning, and alternatives to standardised testing.
