Program: School Library System

Audience: Secondary level librarians and teachers in the ONC BOCES region

Dates: 12/15/2022

Given our already overloaded curriculum and the global Infodemic of disinformation, how do we realistically teach all of our students habits of critical thinking about all media messages?

This interactive full-day workshop will give librarians the inspiration, theory, models, resources - and some time - for planning how to integrate critical thinking about all mediated information into your work with students and teachers.

Chris Sperry, award-winning teacher, co-founder of Project Look Sharp, and co-author of Teaching Students to Decode the World, will engage participants in a practical model for media decoding that can be integrated at all grade levels and subjects. This question-based approach uses rich media documents - from blogs to books and paintings to Pinterest - to motivate all students to learn core IFC and subject area standards.

In the afternoon participants will review free classroom-ready lessons and PD materials, individually, in teams, or small groups to create plans for implementing this work.
In addition to the December 15 in-person workshop, there will be 3, 1-hour virtual follow-up sessions in April, June, and November 2023, whereby participants will share with their cohort their successes and challenges with the process, and will receive collegial feedback.
