  • Introduce presenters: Katie Cole and Heather Jakobi

    Check: Each participant should have the package of lessons, cd, and handouts.

    Today’s session is to help teachers implement the new Media Violence Resource for Secondary Teachers teaching English.

    The goal of these lessons is to have our students watch and play, record and create, pause and ponder, eject and reflect, communicate and connect, network and respond, listen carefully, and stop and act upon their media.

    As teachers I know that keeping up with popular culture and new media is challenging and we hope that these lessons and resources can help you meet course expectations while upping your ‘cool factor’.
