Collaborating with Other Educators

As you begin to develop activities, lessons, projects, and units to support Media Literacy, we ask that you consider sharing these resources with your colleagues across Michigan. A discussion board along with a shared folder will be used to collect your reflections, questions, and shared resources. You can share resources here: Resources Shared by Colleagues.
