Welcome to ITAG Media Resources!


This is a project generated by the members of the ITAG (Inquiry to Action Group), Combatting the Banking Mentality: Integrating Media and Youth Culture into the Classroom in the Winter of 2009, facilitated by Kahlil Almustafa and Charan P. Morris.  This wiki has been created to help log and update media resources that we have found to be useful in our teaching practice, as we seek to integrate media and youth culture into our classrooms.  See something you like?  Use it!  Have a resource to add?  Add it!


This wiki is the brainchild of educators who are committed to bringing multi-media experiences into the classroom in order to promote literacy and critical thinking. Using youth culture and high-interest methods to break down higher level concepts works!  Why do we think this is important?  Check out our testimony.

Here's a quick summary of our ITAG's goals:


Combatting the Banking Mentality: Integrating Media and Youth Culture into the Classroom

This ItAG explores the integration of media and youth culture in the classroom to provide educators and activists the tools to create interactive spaces for engaged critical thinking. Participants will create a vision of the kinds of classroom environments they hope to create through the integration of youth culture and will be introduced to a variety of strategies and methods. Participants will gain a better understanding of what resources and strategies they can use to create interactive classrooms that build on students’ interests.
