Helping Our Children Become Media Savvy
There’s no doubt that all media – including movies – have the ability to impact young minds. Through film, every director and screenwriter has particular themes and messages they are trying to convey.
As adults, we can help our children learn to discern the viewpoint of each film and reflect on their opinion about the vantage point.
Here is Common Sense Media’s Movies That Inspire Kids to Change the World, which includes lists of movies that impact young people of all ages.
You’ll also find on the site all sorts of other resources to help you work with children to increase their media literacy.
I’d love to hear how you incorporate media and media literacy into your programming.
