Media Constructions of Social Justice

Educators looking for a lesson on the intersection of media and equity should check out "Media Constructions of Social Justice." This toolkit is designed to "explore how people in the United States have perceived social justice over the past 180 years and how the U.S. media has constructed that public perception." The curriculum is broken into nine units that cover intersectional aspects of social justice work, beginning with the abolition of slavery and concluding with environmental justice. Instructors may wish to begin by reading the "Overview" and "How to Use These Materials" documents, both downloadable as PDFs from the Kit Documents list on the left-hand side. The curriculum is suggested for high school through college level courses. Every unit is subdivided into three sections, each with downloadable PDFs of lesson plans, teacher guides, student readings or activities, and more. Users are required to create a free account in order to access the materials. "Media Constructions of Social Justice" is a branch of Ithaca College's Project Look Sharp, which strives to enhance media literacy and critical thinking on and beyond their campus.
