Wondering what to do with all that extra time with the kids this summer? Some days just too hot or rainy to play outside? Why not start your own Junior Film Critics Club?
Our next 2-part class is scheduled for May 12 and May 19. There will be day sessions at 1pm Eastern Time and evening sessions at 8:30pm Eastern Time. The course fee of $30, with discounts available for educators, is fully refundable once you’ve completed your training and reviewed your first six films with your jury. The training takes place in the comfort of your own home, using only a telephone or headset and a computer (internet access is required, though hi-speed is not necessary.)
In this class, you will learn how to evaluate children’s media based on our standardized criteria and to work with a group of kids to help them become critical media viewers. Kid’s juries are made up of at least five kids in a particular age group. All approved DVDs, CDs and video games are yours to keep, so it’s also a great way to build up your media library, or help out your local school, church, library or other youth organization. And KIDS FIRST! reviews appear on our website and in parenting magazines.
To sign up for the class, fill out our juror application form, or email the Jury Manager for more information.
