New National Core Arts Standards were released in 2014, and states across the U.S. and individual districts are now beginning to align their curricula to the new standards. The new standards are based on a different philosophical foundation than the previous standards, published in 1994, and this shift demonstrates the field of art education’s evolution as they prepare students for the 21st century.  Participants in this institute will have an opportunity learn about and work with the National Core Arts Standards alongside of experts in art education curriculum as well as those involved in the national standards writing process.

ENGL 692 - Media Literacy (CRN 4199)

Dates/Location: 6/26/17 – 6/30/17 | McNairy 104
Professor: Dr. Timothy Shea

Every day we hear cries of “fake news” and “media bias” but do our students know how to discern the difference? Our students are inundated with a wide array of images in a plethora of media but they often struggle to read and to analyze this ubiquitous media in digital spaces? This institute will help educators learn how to equip students with the skills to critically review and evaluate media texts as well as digital and social media. Drawing from expertise in television, film, advertising, video games, and social media, faculty will demonstrate strategies to teach students how to find, evaluate, and communicate information with media literacy tools, all of which are connected to national and state standards. Teachers will learn strategies to integrate these media texts in classes as they engage students in their learning that empowers adolescents to become stronger readers and writers of print text, too! This active institute will engage participants to lead their students to “read and interpret the word and the world” through relevant film and media texts.
