40+ Blog Posts to Celebrate AML’s 40th Anniversary

 In Blog

The Association for Media Literacy officially came into existence in 1978. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the organization, our executive board decided on a goal – to publish 40 blog posts in 2018 on the www.aml.ca website. Thankfully, we were able to achieve this goal, and actually exceed it! Below is a list of the 42 articles published in 2018. The AML would like to thank all the writers and contributors who, directly or indirectly, helped create fresh, relevant, Canadian media content for the site. We have big plans for 2019, which will be shared as they come closer to fruition.
