Around one month ago I found out that I've made it to the finals for the Cablevision Leaders in Learning Awards in the category of Media Literacy. Here is their website: http://i.ciconline.org/LIL/Finalists2007.html
For this grant, Cablevision wanted a unit with examples of student work that promoted Media Literacy. I submitted the Album Project, which is an end-of-year portfolio album of student's music. Essentially, my music technology students have to create an album of their own original composotions, the artwork, a short music video, and a promotional media plan. It works well for a portfolio assessment. The description of the requirements are online.
