Field-Based Teacher Education in Elementary Media Literacy as a Means to Promote Global Understanding
This article describes a university-school partnership that supports the professional development of preservice teachers and elementary teachers. The authors introduced the instructional principles and practices of media literacy education. The authors wanted to support children's critical thinking and communication skills while deepening their understanding of the peoples and cultures of the Middle East. This case study of a university-school partnership shows how a partnership between preservice teachers and elementary educators may help combat stereotypes, support critical thinking about media and technology, develop composition and creative skills, and promote children's global understanding of the people and cultures of the Middle East.
