    I’m working with Drug Free Pennsylvania and I’d love to create a shoutout for our upcoming Media Literacy Seminars for a blog post your website.

    Here’s the scoop:

    Drug Free Pennsylvania will host three Media Literacy Seminars across Pennsylvania this fall. The seminars will teach how to use specific instructional strategies for raising young people’s awareness and critical thinking skills in responding to mass media and social media messages that depict alcohol and tobacco use.

    This Act 48 qualifying seminar is ideal for teachers, prevention specialists, school counselors, community leaders, school nurses and anyone concerned about promoting critical thinking about unhealthy messages and preventing substance abuse in our youth. In this lively, hands-on program participants will receive new instructional practices that help create a dynamic learning environment for youth in and out of school.

    The Media Literacy Seminars will be held on the following dates, at the noted location. All seminars are 8:30 am – 3:30 pm.

    The Media Literacy Conference is ideal for those educators who utilize The Media Straight Up! – a free curriculum available from Drug Free Pennsylvania where educators will learn more about how the skills of digital and media literacy can contribute to young people’s ability to understand how media messages affect their perceptions of drugs and alcohol, and may influence the choices they make. All participants in the seminar will receive a copy of the curriculum.

    Drug Free Pennsylvania (DFPA) is a statewide, nonprofit, 501 (c) (3) organization that creates healthier communities by educating individuals of all ages and providing workplace solutions through programs that prevent substance abuse. We accomplish our mission through influencing healthy choices, lifestyle changes and striving to make Pennsylvania a safe place to live, work, play, and learn without the undue influences and effects of substance abuse.

    I look forward to hearing from you!
