A SPRINKLE OF TECHNOLOGY
When I was in the classroom, I used Discovery Education weekly. It is a fantastic resource for finding all types of media to use in your classroom - NOT JUST VIDEOS! You can search for encyclopedia articles, videos, images, quizzes, teacher guides, virtual bulletin boards, and more!
One of my favorite features of DE is the ability to search media specifically by TEKS!
First, log in to Discovery Education. If you need help logging in to your DE account, please contact me! I'm happy to help!
Once you are in, you can always search for media based on a keyword such as weather or planets by typing the keyword or phrase in the search box. BUT, if you click the Curriculum Standards Search link under the search box you can actually bring up pieces of media for specific TEKS!
Select your state, standards, document, subject, and grade level.
All of the TEKS for that content and grade level will appear. Click on the "+" next to each strand in order to see specific Student Expectations (SE). If a SE is hyperlinked, that means there are pieces of media attached to it! Just click the link to see the media!
Are you looking for something specific? Maybe you only want to see images or encyclopedia articles? Narrow your results by media type in the menu to the left of the search results.
Click on a result to view, download, or find more information. That's all there is to it!
