Teaching Channel

Teaching Channel, a new non-profit focused on professional development, is a video showcase—on the web and television—of great teaching in America’s public schools.  The new national non-profit’s focus is to elevate and celebrate teaching with an emphasis on sharing promising and best teaching practices. 

Some of the series in production include Great Lesson Ideas, Beginning Teacher Survival Pack, and Tough to Teach Topics. Teaching Channel’s website enables teachers to download and share videos and the supporting lesson plans. These video lessons for K-12 students in English language arts, math, science, and history/social sciences include lesson objectives, questions to consider, homework ideas, and more. The site also provides space for a community of online learners, where teachers can add feedback on the lessons and offer their own ideas and best practices.
