PBS Teachers

PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) has created a portal--PBS Teachers ( all their educational resources and services. Through this web site, teachers can access free standards-based lesson plans, classroom activities, videos, on-demand streaming video, blogs, and professional development information. Resources are organized by subject, grade level, and curriculum topic. The portal started this month (April, 2007). This summer the ability to bookmark, annotate, and share the resources will be available.

In addition to accessing national PBS resources through this portal, you can localize the web site to your local PBS station and access resources from there.

Professional Development is available through PBS TeacherLine ( Teachers enrolled in PBS TeacherLine can earn graduate credit and CEUs.

The PBS Shop for Teachers ( can help you find DVDs and other education resources linked to PBS series and specials.

PBS has been an excellent source of information and materials for teaching and learning for a long time. This portal web site simplifies access to their educational resources for teachers. This will be very helpful.
