PBS learningMedia is a comprehensive, on-demand digital library that offers a flexible way to integrate media into Ready to Learn and K – 12 classrooms. You can access thousands of classroom-ready, curriculum-targeted digital resources aligned to Common Core and national standards, including videos, interactives, audio, documents, and in-depth lesson plans. You can browse by standards, grade level, subject area, and special collections and also favorite and share resources with your class and colleagues. Best of all, PBS LearningMedia’s basic service is free for PreK-12 educators.
Also found on PBS LearningMedia are collections of resource clips of programming produced by Prairie Public, including: ND and MN Regional Studies, PCOR, Indian Pride, and Germans From Russia. The associated full-length videos can be found on our YouTube channel. Some of these resources were also included in the North Dakota Studies program, originally offered in conjunction with the ND State Historical Society and Humanities Council. A new and significant North Dakota Department of Instruction resource we also would like to mention is the Teachings of Our Elders, also known as the Native American Essential Understandings project.
Lesson Plans From Our 2017 Master Teachers
Prairie Public Education Services has selected an outstanding group of Master Teachers from our summer conference: Integrate, Innovate, Motivate 2017. 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.
