Developed in partnership with WGBH Education, PBS LearningMedia is an on-demand media service for educators that provides easy access to free, classroom-ready, curriculum-targeted, multi-platform resources. Spanning K-12, much of the content draws from such popular PBS programming as NOVA, Design Squad, and Curious George. Each resource lists the corresponding state and national standards, and many include background essays for teachers, sample discussion questions and teaching tips, and classroom handouts. PBS LearningMedia is a growing community of thoughtful educators who have come to rely on PBS - the number 1 brand in America – to access the highest quality media-rich resources to support instruction.
