Article by Doug Johnson Home Articles Contact information Column title, periodical, and issue: A Curriculum Built Not to Last Published in School Library Journal, April 1999. "It is easier to move a cemetery than to change a curriculum." Woodrow Wilso n Our district had not just been ignoring library and technology instruction, of course. Most librarians and some teachers had been teaching: the traditional library skills of location and access keyboarding, word processing, and computer "literacy" activities some electronic research skills including Internet access and the use of CD-ROM-based reference sources a very tradition research process Besides not reflecting changes in resources and methodologies, what we were teaching was usually undocumented, was often taught in isolation in the library, and was taught inconsistently from teacher to teacher, grade to grade, and building to building throughout our nine elementary schools by our 200 teachers and librarians. By direction of the district's media and technology advisory committee, the media specialists and I began to create a new curriculum that would better meet the needs of our students and staff. I nicknamed the curriculum revision project "Agatha" after the popular "information problem solving" author Agatha Christie. At a media specialists' brainstorming session, we decided that we would start with our K-6 curriculum, and its revision would have the following outcomes:

Help Youth Sort Out the Meaning in the Messages Many teens spend more waking hours with the media - television, movies, music, magazines and computer technologies - than they do with parents and other adults. Popular culture, reflected in the media, has the power to shape values and beliefs in ways that often challenge the teachings of your faith. The same media can also provide youth with exciting ways to discover important religious values. In order to help youth sort out the subtle meanings in media messages and to become critical viewers of the media, many faith leaders are incorporating "media literacy" lessons into their youth programs. When youth understand the impact of media in popular culture, they are less susceptible to its negative influences.
  • Educate parents and other adults about the importance of helping kids analyze the media. Increase their awareness by including discussions of media literacy principles in parenting classes and tips in parenting materials.

86. Media Literacy
Media Literacy
Melinda Johnson LIS 386L.3 Dr. Loriene Roy Media Literacy: Introduction Exposure to large amounts of data through newspapers, magazines, television, film and the Internet is a daily occurrence. In order to make sense of all these media messages, people need to become media literate (ML). The Canadian Ministry of Education defines media literacy as “the ability to critically understand, question and evaluate how media work and produce meaning, how they are organized, how they mediate and construct reality, and how they impact our lives. ML may include the ability to create media products.” This pathfinder directs pre-service teachers at the Northwest Indian College (NWIC) in Lummi, Washington to media literacy resources. All the selected resources are freely available on the Internet. I selected resources that provide a broad coverage of both media literacy information such as media violence and censorship as well as teaching tools such as lesson plans and learning activities. In order to guarantee current information, the pathfinder contains only sites updated since January 2000. An online version of this pathfinder is available from This pathfinder cites resources that provide background information on media literacy such as history, definitions, issues, organizations, and projects as well as tools for education professionals teaching media literacy. The resources in this pathfinder will answer questions such as: Where can I find general information about media literacy? What are some media literacy organizations? What are some examples of media literacy projects? Where can I find media literacy resources for the classroom?

FAX (512) 471-5812 "Though it should be clear by now that there's far more to 'computer literacy' than simply learning how to use the hardware and software, many educators and policy-makers continue to define that term in a terribly narrow fashion," Burniske said. "Clearly, basic definitions shape the way we think about things, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that students think of computers and the activities they generate as separate from moral and ethical concerns." Burniske, a doctoral candidate at The University of Texas at Austin's Computer Writing and Research Lab, is the author of Literacy in the Cyberage: Composing Ourselves Online, a practical handbook written for teachers and students preparing to become teachers. The book presents Burniske's insights drawn from the brave new world of cyberspace and the ancient, traditional world of the humanities. Burniske's handbook provides teachers with practical ideas on how to teach in an increasingly wired world. Burniske said he hopes it will help teachers trying to integrate computer technology into classroom learning, despite limited technical training and professional development opportunities.
