Out-of-school time (OST) and classroom educators are invited to join the Pulitzer Center for a virtual conversation exploring the relationship between media literacy and mental health on Wednesday, October 25, 7:00-8:00pm EDT. Pulitzer Center staff and an educator panel will examine the questions:

  • How can media literacy skills support student mental health?
  • How can educators prioritize mental health (for our students, and ourselves) when teaching about media literacy?

Speakers will introduce resources designed to strengthen students’ media literacy skills while prioritizing their wellbeing and social-emotional learning, and describe how they have used them in their own classrooms.

Participants will hear from Pulitzer Center Teacher Fellows Karen Sojourner, a high school teacher in Kansas City, Missouri; Lisa Holewa, an elementary school teacher and former journalist in San Mateo, California; and Michelle Dueñas Mowery, a high school teacher in Chicago, Illinois.

After attending the session, and upon completion of a short survey, educators will receive a certificate for two professional learning units (PLUs).*

This event is free, but registration is required. Sign up today!
