PBS LearningMedia has added new content to its free repository of digital teaching materials, which now includes more than 30,000 resources, PBS says.
“These new resources will help educators engage … students with different learning styles by leveraging the power of digital media,” said Alicia Levi, managing director of PBS LearningMedia.
The new content bolsters the website’s offerings in math, science, English/language arts, social studies, and the arts. It features interactive games, lesson plans, and videos from PBS and PBS KIDS programs, such as:
• Videos, lesson plans, interactives, and images from the PBS program Constitution USA allow students to explore the meaning and relevance of the U.S. Constitution for all Americans.
• Videos showcasing the social-emotional curriculum from the PBS KIDS preschool series Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood help early learners build the social skills necessary for school and life.
• A collection of videos from the critically acclaimed program Makers: Women Who Make America is accompanied by lesson plans that explore the pioneering contributions of women.
• Video segments from the PBS show Shakespeare Uncovered also feature informational texts, discussion questions, and suggestions for extension activities to enhance students’ reading, viewing, and appreciation of Shakespeare’s works. This content is deigned for students in grades 8 -12.
