PBS is described as America’s classroom, and in these challenging times those words are truer than ever. Television can engage, inspire, and provide meaningful learning experiences for our students without the need of computers or the Internet.
These discussion questions, activities, and student organizers, based on our Frame, Focus, and Follow-up approach to media viewing, will ensure your students get the most out of their television viewing experience.
