This multimedia-rich site from Boston-based public broadcaster WGBH features a robust collection of classroom-ready digital resources and professional development tools pertaining to the life sciences. Each resource on the Teacher’s Domain is tailored to specific grade levels and correlated to national and state standards. Topics include ecology and ecosystems, genetics, cell structure, evolution, and more. The Teacher’s Domain also features more than 150 broadcast clips from popular WGBH programs such as NOVA, A Science Odyssey, and Zoom. Video segments include outtake footage and interactive, web-based activities. Photos, animations, images, and text are cataloged and presented with contextual information designed to help teachers present scientific concepts for independent study by students. The site was funded in part by the National Science Foundation. Educators must register to receive free access.
