Deconstructing Disney Lesson Plans
Now that Walt Disney owns Star Wars and Marvel, it might seem like it has substantial control over childhood and the realm of the imagination.

Developed by Pam Steager and Renee Hobbs, this set of materials was premiered at the 2018 Providence Children's Film Festival in Providence RI. Download the curriculum and access the digital resources here.
