Hey, Teachers! PBS Wants to Help You Out!

Watch Introducing PBS LearningMedia on PBS. See more from pbs.


I recently received a press release about the new PBS LearningMedia® service, claimed to help increase student achievement. I wondered what subjects are available in this free database and visited the site. It's pretty amazing. Check it out here.

You can search a wide variety of subjects—including arts, math, science, social studies—and by grade from Pre-K to 13-plus. Lessons are all over the map—a jingle about the 50 states, a microscopic view of the 24 human chromosomes, capturing renewable energy, learning about cheese melting, asking if pigs can be pets and old standbys like learning about acute triangles and amendments to the Constitution.

There will be an information fair about PBS LearningMedia® for educators on Tuesday, June 19, at Sunnyside High School. Call 621-1500 or email wwerden@azpm.org for info. Register at http://fairforeducators.net.
