Mission Statement

We, the teachers and senior students at Eastwood Collegiate wish to offer other teachers, parents, grandparents, children, and students ideas and resources that will enable them to engage critical thinking in response to media. This Website is for everyone of all ages and walks of life. And we are the same different kind of people who constructed this Website. Media affects us all of us. It's time we began to wise up and think critically.

Our motto is simple: "Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul." As educators and parents, we know that media and corporate ideas of the meaning of life encroach on our existence and the existence of our children. We need to decode, analyze, and deconstruct media images and messages to further the cause of a free-thinking, democratic society in the new millenium.

While much of our response to media and popular culture will be critical, we will also offer strategies and ideas on how to use and create media.
