Teaching Critical Thinking in Iran – Local Educators Speak after Nov. 25 Film at Cinemopolis

From Chris Sperry:

Professor Cyndy Scheibe and LACS teacher Chris Sperry, co-directors of Ithaca College’s media literacy initiative, Project Look Sharp, will be speaking on Tuesday, November 25, after the 7pm showing of Jon Stewart’s film Rosewater about the 2009 imprisonment of a US journalist in Iran.  Scheibe and Sperry recently returned from Iran where they delivered key-note addresses about integrating critical thinking and media literacy into Iranian education at the First International Conference on Media Literacy in Iran.  In their Cinemopolis presentation they will show media, tell stories and interact with the audience about their experiences in Iran and the role of media in shaping our cross-cultural understandings and misunderstandings.
