This section provides the learner with an inviting and engaging introduction to the topic of your mini-course, specifies the target learner, and gives an overview of how this course works. The importance of the topic may be demonstrated through problem scenarios, storytelling, case analysis, statistics, etc.

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. To assist them, they will review a media literacy lesson plan for a World War Two Unit. Learners will be assessed by creating their own media literacy lesson plan and will self reflect on what they have learned and how media and media literacy impacts their personal and professional lives.
