The Teaching Channel is a resource I just learned about last week, and I love it! The Teaching Channel not only gives educators great ideas – correlated with the National Common Core State Standards – PLUS it gives video examples of how to pull off those ideas in classrooms, with supporting documentation. There are ideas for classroom management techniques, tips & tricks for the classroom, specific Common Core teaching strategies for various topics, etc. So, if you need a good idea on how to approach a topic for your classroom – CHECK OUT THE TEACHING CHANNEL!
Here are a few examples, from their YouTube Channel:
Notes about the YouTube Channel vs. the Teaching Channel Web site: Most of the YouTube videos that are available now are for K-8, at least at the time of this posting. But don’t despair, High School teachers, there are well over 100 videos for grades 9-12 available on the Teaching Channel Web site. Supporting documents are also not available on the YouTube channel, but all the documents and videos are available through the Teaching Channel Web site. Embedding the videos into this blog post was easier to do through YouTube.
