Carolyn shared two curriculum units at NCTE. The first was “(Re)Imagining Ibsen’s A Doll’s House with Critical Literacy.” The second was “Online Persona Role Plays: Advertisement Analysis.” Each offered participants the opportunity to see how students can depersonalize their literacy experiences to more keenly relate to individuals, settings, and cultural practices outside what’s considered “normal.” Digital media literacy analysis and composition helped students create critical distance from media messages.

Carolyn talked to M.A.T. candidates about her experiences as a public school teacher in an “Introduction to Digital and Media Literacy as Serious Educational Discourse.” Providence, July, 2013.
