The CML MediaLit Kit™ is a collection of resources designed to articulate the core concepts of media literacy education and how to teach it across the K-12 curriculum. Although some resources are free, major publications (including books and curricula) are available for sale through CML's store.
The CML MediaLit Kit™ is the first comprehensive framework that provides a firm foundation for developing inquiry-based media literacy programs and curriculum – from kindergarten through college. MediaLit Kit™ materials are acclaimed for their ‘plain language’ articulations of the theory and practice of media literacy thus making them extremely useful for both pre-service and in-service professional development programs, graduate seminars in colleges of education, or as the cornerstone “textbook” for online courses in media literacy theory and practice.
