Recent legislation (IL House Bill 234) amended the Illinois school code by adding a provision that, beginning with the 2022-2023 school year, every public high school is required to include in its curriculum a unit of instruction on media literacy. Our new Certificate in Teaching Media Literacy will provide 12 credits of online synchronous classes that will prepare you to teach the new media literacy instruction requirements.
