Wilson High School

Students will work directly with high school or middle school teachers to research and prepare various units of study on Media Literacy. Students will use a methodology that focuses on case studies that investigate Media Literacy and its influence on a variety of subjects. Students will determine, by interest and experience, the units to be developed and then supported as the content of the in-service workshop. Possibilities include: Media and Politics, Media and History, Media and Resource Allocation, Media and Consumers, and Media and the Military.
