Mix IT Up! began work with Illinois Public Media (WILL) and Stratton Elementary School this semester (Fall 2012). Throughout the year, students of the Stratton Media Venture will learn to write and produce their own newscast and school announcements. As a foundation to media, the educational outreach coordinator and I developed curriculum that deals with media on the mass consumption level but also on a personal scale. The capstone project, Photovoice, guided 2nd-5th graders through an analysis of the media on the walls of their school.
