My research interests are focused on media education, especially integrating media literacy into the primary and secondary school classroom. In addition to teaching at UMass, I am a Steering Committee Member and Co-Chair of the Curriculum Committee of the Massachusetts Media Literacy Consortium and media educator in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts. I work in the community with homeschool, alternative school, and public school students on media literacy education. I have published two books on integrating media literacy into the curriculum: Media Literacy Goes to School (Peter Lang, 2010) and Majoring in Change (Peter Lang, 2012).
