Announcing New Distance Learning Options for Miss Representation and The Mask You Live In
Since students are likely to increase their media consumption over the next few weeks while schools are closed, education centered around media literacy and social-emotional learning is critical to the well-being of all of our young people during these uncertain times.
Together with filmmaker and founder of The Representation Project, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, we are pleased to make curricula files for our films Miss Representation and The Mask You Live In available for free (for a limited time only) while distance learning is taking place.
Each curriculum includes links to age-appropriate video clips from our films as well as bonus content not available in the films. Also included in each curriculum are grade-level lesson plans and activities that can be modified for distance learning as well as helpful resources for further learning.

There is no traditional classroom use or public performance licensing included in this offer. This is for distance learning use only.
We wish you, your families, and your students the very best during this extended absence from our school communities.
