PROJECT LOOK SHARP is a media literacy initiative of the School of Humanities and Sciences at Ithaca College, working in collaboration with local school districts, New York State BOCES, the National Association of Media Literacy Education (NAMLE) and other national media literacy organizations. The project is designed to promote and support the integration of media literacy and critical thinking into curricula at all grade levels and across instructional areas, as well as to evaluate the effectiveness of media literacy education in the schools. This curriculum-driven initiative works directly with teachers and support staff to reach students and aims to foster a spirit of collaboration among educators using media literacy. Project Look Sharp provides curriculum materials, strategies and advice for media literacy instruction, and acts as a liaison between educators and the media literacy field at large.
