The Teaching Channel Presents offers strategies for best practices in the classroom
Fridays at 1 p.m. on WV PBS
Teaching Channel Presents is a video showcase -- on the Internet and TV -- of innovative and effective teaching practices in America’s schools.
Oct. 11: Inside Common Core Classrooms -- We’ll begin the new season of Teaching Channel Presents in classrooms where teachers are already integrating the Common Core. From adding and subtracting to fractions and functions, we’ll follow students as they explore mathematical reasoning across grade levels. See how the standards change as students advance. And, we’ll visit three lively English classes where the Common Core emphasis is on speaking and listening skills.
Oct. 18: Common Core PreK – 12 -- We’ll start with Pre-K math students and finish up with high school English students as we explore the many ways Common Core is being integrated into classrooms—in both math and ELA the emphasis is teaching students how to think.
Oct. 25: New Teacher Survival Guide -- We’ll follow several new teachers and their mentors as they focus on essential first-year skills from lesson planning to classroom management to differentiation. This hour is filled with useful “do’s and don’ts” for new teachers.
Nov. 1: Digital Citizens & Improving Practice -- In our first half hour, we’ll see how students are becoming “Super Digital Citizens” as they learn how to use the Internet responsibly— then, we’ll switch gears and too see new ways teachers are working to improve their practice.
