Developing and Using Critical Comprehension, American University
Emily Stingle is the project manager for Invent2Prevent’s Spring 2022 winning team, DUCC (Developing & Using Critical Comprehension), from American University. Invent2Prevent is a semester long competition that challenges college students to design a tool, product or initiative that prevents targeted violence and terrorism. The competition is sponsored by EdVenture Partners, the McCain Institute, and the Department of Homeland Security’s Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships. DUCC provides digital literacy tools to educators of 1st-6th grade students, including parent and teacher guides, lesson plans, and an animated video to teach students about online misinformation and its consequences. Emily is currently a student at AU studying Justice & Law and Sociology and a research assistant at PERIL, the Polarization and Extremism Research & Innovation Lab, where she continues to expand DUCC’s digital literacy resources and outreach.
