What Else You Need To Know

This field guide is an interactive tool, not a lesson plan or curriculum.

Our design aims to help practitioners contemplate equity-driven and inclusive media literacy practices. It is open and free to use.

It was built from extensive research conducted in 2020-2021.

The report and field guide provide guidance for finding answers to tough questions about equity and inclusion in media literacy. We aim to push the conversation forward and create a better future for the coming generations.

We encourage you to explore the entire field guide and take advantage of the exercises, evaluations, and activities across the five sections.

If you have questions about the field guide or the research behind it, please contact us.
