A democratic civilization will save itself only if it makes the language of the image into a stimulus for critical reflection, not an invitation to hypnosis.
Visualizing the Trump Presidency
By now, we've had nearly four years --and thousands of images --representing the Trump presidency. Join us to explore the amazing archive of mazazine covers developed by media literacy guru Frank Baker. We'll be demonstrating how to use these images to address the Trump presidency while building knowledge and vocabulary of media literacy concepts in a fully-online classroom. See how collaborative use of the Google Jamboard can help students develop critical thinking skills in responding to visual media of all kinds.
