Inquiry StructureThis synopsis is laid out in more detail in the outline and lesson suggestions in the following pages. Students are first introduced to the idea of personal primary sources through the linked article and whatever artifacts can be used in staging the question. After students have been introduced to this concept they will then, as homework, they interview relatives to learn what they can about their family history and whatever artifacts in the family connect to those stories. During class, students will be instructed in and practice the media literacy skills that will allow them to research in detail the historical context for their family history. This research into the historical context of their family history will be the summative performance task for the inquiry and is the second week of the unit.

Rating
0.0 stars

The goal of this Framework is to organize the complex and interrelated content areas of Media Literacy and Digital Citizenship into manageable chunks. We hope that K-12 educators can use it as a starting point for a scope & sequence, or as a cataloged collection of recommended instructional resources. It is organized into themes, essential questions, and learning objectives, which are aligned with Washington State subject area standards. The Framework was initially created by the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction Media Literacy & Digital Citizenship Program in 2022. For more information, contact the Program Supervisor, Lesley James, lesley.james@k12.wa.us.
