Labragirl Media Project's Summer Media Literacy Luncheon Series for Teachers
- Are you a teacher or administrator interested in helping students move from unconsciously consuming images to thinking critically about the media?
- Are you a parent who wants new ideas about how to dialogue with your child/children about the media?
- Do you want to engage in stimulating conversation with your peers?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above, come to Labragirl Media Project's summer Media Literacy Luncheon Series for thought-provoking conversation and good food. Labragirl's 3-part summer media literacy luncheon series is a community forum to discuss issues and ideas associated with media literacy. Each facilitated luncheon will focus on a specific topic related to media literacy. Labragirl Media Project will send participants relevant, yet short, videos and articles to review before each luncheon.
All luncheons will take place in the community room at Root Down. Menu choices will vary at each luncheon. Root Down is located at 1600 West 33rd Ave, Denver, CO, 80211. You can learn more about Root Down here.
