Project Look Sharp – Media Literacy Curriculum

Project Look Sharp, created as part of an initiative sponsored by Ithaca College, is a collection of ten comprehensive curriculum units for teaching media literacy. Eight of the units are geared toward to middle school and high school use. Two of the units are designed for elementary school use. With in each unit there are three to five comprehensive lesson plans. The lessons include videos, slideshows, worksheets, and teacher guides. To work through each lesson plan will take at least two days. Some of the topics that this curriculum units address include Presidential campaigns, use of media in the former Soviet Union, and endangered species.

Applications for Education
Project Look Sharp could be used in social studies, media arts, and science courses. For example the curriculum for endangered species could easily overlap between science and social studies.
