Iranian Youth and Media Literacy

Lesson plans explore issues of identity and representation in this youth media workshop for Iranian-American youth

Curriculum Resources from the Youth Media Workshop for Iranian American Youth, held in Philadelphia from August 3 - 7, 2009 at the Asian Arts Initiative. See the lesson plans and reflections.

Developed by Aggie Ebrahimi Bazaz, this program was also co-sponsored by: The Middle East Center of UPenn; The Asian Arts Initiative; Shabahang Persian Cultural Society; Temple University's Film and Media Arts Department; The Media Education Lab; and S&H Kebab House. Like the Media Education Lab's partnership with Roberts Elementary School, this program aims to bridge cultural understanding (of Iranian culture) through media literacy education.
