Lecturer + Advisor
N327 Integrative Learning Center
My research interests are focused on comprehensive media literacy, especially integrating media literacy into the primary and secondary school classroom. I co-run Mass Media Literacy, a grassroots organization the supports legislation for teacher training in media literacy and builds curriculum for comprehensive media literacy across K-12 public schools in Massachusetts. My upper-level Comm classes all come with a civic engagement component where students have the opportunity to work in the community and across the state with and on behalf of young people and their media learning. I work with homeschool, alternative school, and public school students on media literacy education. I have published two books on bringing media literacy to the curriculum and its implications: Media Literacy Goes to School (Peter Lang, 2010) and Majoring in Change (Peter Lang, 2012).
