Gateway Media Literacy Partners, Inc. (GMLP) was incorporated in Missouri 2004. GMLP’s goal is to attract individuals, organizations and institutions who as community citizens strongly believe media literacy is a democracy skill, is a survival skill and a nexus for change, vital to developing critical thinking, and media literacy empowers citizens to make intelligent and healthy choices throughout their lifetime.
One committee of GMLP is Education Community Engagement; earlier in June, ECE held a mini conference at Cooperating School Districts on Media Literacy for K-12 educators. On it’s webpage, there are many resources from not only those who presented (Bill Bass, Linda Dougherty, Mitch Eden, Don Goble, and Julie Smith) but recommendations from the ECE committee. Do take some time to click around and check it out!
Cooperating School Districts is an institutional member of GMLP.
