May 2022 #NCTEchat: Relevance, Representation, and Empowering Student Voice with Media Education

Join us on Sunday, May 15, at 8:00 p.m. ET for an #NCTEchat addressing three core themes that make media education fundamental to teaching and learning in ELA in this new position statement. NCTE member Kristin Ziemke (@KristinZiemke) will host the chat.

We will share the following questions during the Twitter chat:

WARM-UP: What media are our students using to access information? What media are we (literacy educators) using to access information and teaching strategies? #NCTEchat [8:04 p.m.]

Q1: How are you currently addressing media education in your school or district? #NCTEchat [8:10 p.m.]

Q2a: How do you teach students to assess the widely varying quality of information, entertainment, and persuasion? #NCTEchat [8:16 p.m.]

Q2b: What are some of your go-to resources? #NCTEchat [8:22 p.m.]

Q3: Many forms of media offer an expanded set of genres for reading and writing (Buckingham, 2003). How are you using multimedia or media texts to engage readers, writers, and thinkers? #NCTEchat [8:28 p.m.]

Q4a: What strategies do you use to ensure all students are represented and see themselves in the range of texts, tools, and technologies you share in the classroom? #NCTEchat [8:34 p.m.]

Q4b: How do we ensure that we see an expansive horizon of texts and push against an either/or view with books and media? #NCTEchat [8:40 p.m.]
