The English for Media Literacy Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) is a free program
sponsored by the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine.
This is an English language learning course which is designed to inform the audience about media literacy and how to be better informed about modern media. In this course, you will explore different types of mass media; such as, newspapers, magazines, television, and social media. This course will also give you the opportunity to develop a broader understanding of the role media plays in our lives, while building your vocabulary and giving you the language skills needed to analyze what you read and watch. The first unit in this course will provide an introduction to media literacy and give you an opportunity to evaluate your own media literacy level. In unit 2, you will learn how to identify facts versus opinions in the media. The next unit in the course will focus on the differences between social media and traditional media, while unit will look at how gender and identity are covered in the media. In the final unit of the course, you will demonstrate your increased media literacy by through a culminating final project on social media.
The course will start on April 3, 2017 and will take about 5 weeks.
