The Teachers' Domain training workshops were developed by WGBH Educational Foundation, in collaboration with Iowa Public Television, KQED, Penn State Public Broadcasting, and WNET.org.
In this workshop, teachers will look at ways ways to use Teachers' Domain resources with their students. They will begin by participating as learners in a lesson that looks at how the effects of global warming in Alaska extend to the physical environment and the living things it supports, as well as to the spiritual core of Alaska Native peoples. They will then use this experience to look at ways in which to incorporate Teachers’ Domain resources into an existing lesson. The workshop Facilitator's Guide is available to the left.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
