CML Special Curriculum Programs and Services: Educator Resources

Through the years, CML has not only advocated for media literacy education, but also designed, developed, implemented and evaluated resources for educators and communities to comprise the CML MediaLit Kit™. CML’s framework for media literacy is now evidenced-based, with a peer-reviewed longitudinal study by UCLA.   The following resources -- all utilizing CML's methodology --  are available:
