Earlier this month, ITVS Community Classroom launched a host of free resources for both public television stations and teachers to use in celebration of Black History Month. You can now find classroom modules and lesson plans, along with other educational resources, on PBS Video and PBS LearningMedia.
These resources help make it easier for educators to incorporate African-American history into year-round curriculum: FIND US ON PBS VIDEO
The PBS Video player is the destination to watch public television content online. Educators can find all of the Community Classroom modules here, including those that highlight African-American achievements and history. For example, teach students about the rich history of African-American music traditions through interviews with Clyde Stubblefield and De La Soul from the Copyright Criminals curriculum. Or introduce them to the revolutionary African-American women Angela Davis or Daisy Bates from the Women and Girls Lead Volume 2 curriculum.
FIND US ON PBS LEARNINGMEDIA
PBS LearningMedia is a free online portal to thousands of classroom-ready digital resources for PreK to high school educators. The system allows you to search materials by Common Core and state education standards, as well as customize to your local public television station. With a membership of nearly 70,000 educators, PBS LearningMedia is the place for teachers to find film and television content to use in their classrooms. Browse the resources at pbslearningmedia.org.
Stay tuned as more Community Classroom content launches on PBS Video and PBS LearningMedia for the Spring semester! In the meantime, find all Classroom materials at itvs.org/educators.
