This two part-workshop focuses on developing, implementing, and sustaining film programming for children. Part one is a panel discussion with three Rhode Island educators who will share their experiences with film and media education, including their challenges, successes, and curriculum development. Part two is a presentation from GiveMe5 on their new consulting service for educators and librarians, in which they provide guidance, support, and services for schools and organizations to grow their film and media programming.
