How I Use It
One way I use PBS LearningMedia: I use the reading self directed lessons to reinforce non fiction language arts standards and writing. I use the texting unit during my digital citizenship unit, the pyramid unit during my what is technology unit. Students then select and complete 3 more self directed reading units and develop an independent project going deeper with any of the topics covered in the units.
My Take
Vast video library with teacher led as well as student self directed lessons. The collection includes interactives and handouts to make the learning experience complete. The videos are engaging and the unit always integrate writing. Endless possibilities for all subject areas, including PE.
