Jeff Share’s research and practice focuses on preparing educators and university students to teach critical media literacy in K-12 education, for the goals of social and environmental justice. He has worked as an award-winning photojournalist, bilingual elementary school teacher, and since 2007, he has been educating new teachers in the Teacher Education Program at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Jeff is a Fulbright Program Specialist who presents nationally and internationally at conferences, provides professional development at schools, and writes about critical media literacy and environmental justice. He has trained educators in critical media literacy in the United States, India, Iraq, China, Mexico, and Argentina. An updated second edition of his book, Media Literacy is Elementary: Teaching Youth to Critically Read and Create Media, was published in 2015. Two years later Routledge published the book he co-wrote with Richard Beach and Allen Webb titled, Teaching Climate Change to Adolescents: Reading, Writing, and Making a Difference. Collaborating with Douglas Kellner in 2019, they published, The Critical Media Literacy Guide: Engaging Media and Transforming Education. (
