Bootcamp: Using Media as Core Text


06/25/2018 - 07/01/2018


In this free, online, one-week bootcamp, participants will take the KQED Teach course “Using Media as Core Text” along with a supportive community of fellow educators, and participate in additional activities with special guest teachers and experts. The course will cover:

  • How to effectively use media as a text to teach core content,
  • How to employ multiple media sources and formats to reinforce learning, and
  • How different media formats impact teaching strategies.

Bootcamp participants will create a lesson plan featuring a media text to implement in the fall semester, and will walk away with a collection of media resources to use in their teaching.
