praise for critical media project

The CMP project is a way for youth to discover their personal identities and create personal stories. Schools today need access to resources that builds students’ ability to critically think and ask meaningful questions. Since using CMP with students and teachers, it has boosted the media literacy and understanding of creating content and curation in classrooms.
