Media Constructions of Presidential Campaigns 

Sox Sperry, Project Look Sharp’s primary curriculum writer, will lead participants on a participatory exploration of high school lessons covering media representations of U.S. presidential elections from 1800-2008.  The media and lessons will be drawn from the popular Presidential Campaigns curriculum kit, which is available free online at projectlooksharp.org.

  The webinar will offer high school educators and teachers-in-training    pedagogical techniques and free curriculum materials to support a  deeper understanding of how to use a wide variety of media  forms across the historical spectrum - media from 19th century  portraits, songs and handbills, to 21st century websites, twitter and  email - to study historical context and to question their credibility. The  presenter will also focus on the Key Concepts for Media Analysis.  Participants will leave with handouts and other tools to integrate  media literacy into their curriculum design.
