With support from the Park Foundation, Project Look Sharp has created a new, online media literacy tool to bring the organization and educators closer together. The Park Foundation’s grant will allow those who have previously used Project Look Sharp’s tools for simple media literacy curriculum integration to involve themselves in a unique, collaborative process in developing activities for others. Though the user submission feature is currently in beta testing, many lessons already exist in this program.
An example of CAP set “Throwaway Culture: To Buy or to Reuse?” is linked below. This example contains four short video clips of commercials to analyze and information on food waste for context. From these materials, educators may base a media literacy activity for their curriculums. The example is linked here: https://www.projectlooksharp.org/front_end.php?resource_id=402
