Professional Development

Inspired by teachers we work with, JBFC offers professional development opportunities for educators to engage with our team for skill-building, resources, and ideas on integrating media literacy into the classroom. These are Professional Development Workshops and One-on-One Consultations.

Our goal is for teachers to walk away from these professional development experiences feeling empowered and excited to bring media viewing and doing to their students. 

Overarching Goals:

  • Model how to promote successful group work
  • Promote a differentiated classroom approach
  • Support teachers by showing them they have the resources and skills to succeed
  • Create a community for teachers to touch base and share
  • Use sessions to better understand how to best support teachers
  • Introduce at least some filmic language
  • Give teachers something to take away (slideshow, worksheet, resources)
