Course Length: One Semester   |   Suggested Grade Level(s): 9, 10, 11, 12

Critical media literacy is about learning how to critically engage with, and make sense of, the media. This course helps students develop the analytic tools needed to examine media content and make more informed choices as an active audience. Critical media literacy is grounded in social activism because it is inherently about making change. Studying media critically and learning how the media industries operate in the world often leads to changes in personal media consumption.
