The purpose of this mini-course is to assist Social Studies teachers in learning how to teach their students about media literacy and how to decode media documents within their curriculum. The course will begin with defining what media and media literacy mean and then will aim to question how each participant uses media in their own lives. The course then will instruct learners how to use the National Association for Media Literacy Education key questions to decode historical media documents. In doing so, the learner can connect on how media literacy education links to the classroom and units that include media documentation.
