Lesson Plans From Our 2017 Master Teachers

Criteria included producing a high quality lesson plan that incorporated PBS LearningMedia or other PBS education materials, digital technology, and enthusiasm for promoting teaching for the future.
Many of our popular PBS television programs have education materials for teens and adults that encourage project-based, differentiated and life-long learning. While programs are available for a limited time on air, streaming video, or with a PBS Passport, several have longer-term collections of video clips, lessons, and other digital interactives on PBS LearningMedia.
