Teaching the Presidential Elections Using Media Literacy in the LD Classroom
Siegel, Jaclyn Kahn
Journal of Media Literacy Education, v9 n2 p91-104 2017
This paper examines how an educator at a school for students with learning disabilities (LD) used various types of media to engage her students, to develop their academic and executive functioning skills, and to heighten their awareness of media literacy and the 2012 and 2106 Presidential elections. Teacher-created curriculum materials and activities are provided that support students' ability to analysis media coverage in the context of a special education history classroom. Both media literacy and academic skills were developed through activities that enabled students to find and select resources from their media use at home.
