Learn about "Math at the Core: Middle School," PBS LearningMedia's new collection that illustrates how the Common Core State Standards can be found in our everyday lives.  Explore content from WGBH, WNET, KET, KQED, UEN, MPT, APT, KCPT, KAET, CAAM, that reflects a wide range of culturally responsive perspectives and learning styles.  These innovative and engaging resources are designed for middle school students of diverse learning styles and backgrounds for grades 5-8. This FREE webinar -  hosted by PBS LearningMedia will showcase Common Core-aligned resources from the “Math at the Core: Middle School" Collection, funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

While students today may think of the Civil Rights movement as part of the distant past, it’s clear that many of the problems that fueled that fight are still with us. Please join us for a presentation and conversation on teaching the history of civil rights and its relevance to today's events and social justice issues.  Deborah Menkart, Executive Director of Teaching for Change will moderate and two high school educators will focus on specific parts of the Movement and showcase their classroom work and the resources they draw on. 

 

Eyes on the Prize, the groundbreaking PBS documentary series is currently being rebroadcast on World, a PBS channel.  The WGBH Education Eyes on the Prize  Viewing and Discussion Guide for Educators supports integrating the series into your instruction.  And a new companion collection of classroom resources has recently launched on PBS LearningMedia™ entitled Civil Rights: Then and Now.

 

Space is limited so please register today.  We will be recording and distributing the archived link to all who register.  And, we are thrilled to offer a DVD collection of the entire Eyes on the Prize series to one lucky registrant. The winner will be announced on the webinar.

 

Thank you.
