A survey commissioned by Cable in the Classroom (CIC) found that schools are not doing enough to teach media literacy skills and teachers are not being prepared to teach these skills. Read the report on the research findings, and then post your comments. The survey responses are based on a sample of over 1,000 participants, most of whom are classroom teachers, though some were school library-media specialists. The report is 8 pages and filled with charts. You might want to print it to read it more carefully.
What did you learn from reading the report? Did the findings surprise you? Have they in any way changed your attitudes or beliefs about present classroom teaching practices?
