 Director of Curriculum and Staff Development at Project Look Sharp, Chris Sperry, wins first place in the University of Arizona's Center for Middle Eastern Studies Lesson Plan Competition. 

 The title of his lesson plan, Middle East Debates, focuses on a lesson plan for high school students and includes materials necessary to teach a 9-week elective course on the contemporary Middle East.


Winning lesson plans are shared widely with educators throughout the institute's outreach program. First place winners received a cash prize, certificate, and a collection of resources for use in the teacher’s school.


The initiative for integrating media literacy and critical thinking into curriculums is a collaboration between Project Look Sharp at Ithaca College. They do this through developing and providing lesson plans, media materials, training, and support for educators at all education levels.


Project Look Sharp now has 16 media literacy kits that include detailed teacher guides and lessons for classroom decoding of historic documents for K-12 classroom teachers through the college level. All kits are available free online with hard copy kits sold at cost through Ithaca College bookstore.
