PBS LearningMedia: Massachusetts PBS Edition

  • WGBH and 100kin10

    WGBH Boston has joined 100Kin10's national coalition of nearly 200 organizations, focused on addressing the national imperative to recruit, train, and retrain 100,000 STEM teachers before 2021. WGBH will produce and curate at least 1000 STEM-focused digital assets in PBS LearningMedia™.

    "As the largest content producer for PBS, WGBH is uniquely equipped to build a catalog of digital resources that complement and enhance classroom curriculum," said WGBH President and CEO Jonathan Abbott.

    This partnership recognizes WGBH's innovation, boldness, and proven track-record to commitments toward expanding, improving, and retaining the nation's STEM teaching force.

  • MODEL CURRICULUM UNITS

    As part of a Race to the Top proposal, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) worked with educators throughout the Commonwealth to develop free Model Curriculum Units (MCUs) designed to help you bring to life the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. These MCUs span PreK-12 in English language arts, Mathematics, Science, Technology, and Engineering, and History/Social Sciences. Each of these units identifies the standards(s) to be taught, big understandings, essential questions, a Curriculum Embedded Performance Assessment (CEPA), an outline of lessons, possible digital resources to use, and detailed lesson plans. Several of these units have been flagged as exemplar by Achieve. Click here to access the MCUs: http://ow.ly/wCU6P 

    WGBH and the DESE recently held a series of webinars about the MCUs. You can watch the recordings at the following links:
