Students today are inundated with media coverage of bad behavior and poor decision-making by adults.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 15, 2011
As media coverage of the Casey Anthony murder trial reaches a fever pitch, Education World® announced today that it has developed a new, free lesson plan on Media Literacy and High-Profile Crime Cases. The lesson plan provides a special focus on the Anthony case. Timely resources such as this one, which helps students think critically about sensational stories in the news, have been increasingly popular with EducationWorld.com users.
Students today are inundated with media coverage of bad behavior and poor decision-making by adults. Educators want advice on how to address controversial topics, but often lesson plans are not available when they are needed.
Recent lesson plans on current events, such as the How to Handle Scandals series, have been among the most popular content on Education World, " The Educator's Best Friend™." More than 300,000 educators view millions of pages each month. Education World provides free K-12 resources to teachers, administrators and school technology coordinators to enhance instruction and improve student performance. The site was recently re-launched with an easy-to-use design. All resources are free all the time, and new content is added daily. Resources include K-12 lesson plans, professional development articles and more.
