Teachers’ Domain

Teachers’ Domain is a website hosted by PBS that has lesson plans for basically all subject areas (if link is broken, google “Teachers’ Domain”). Most of the lessons include free movies and other materials. Standards are included if you register, which is free. It also includes teaching strategies and professional development information. I viewed one social studies lesson that was partially sponsored by Walmart, so that left me wondering…

Honestly, these lessons didn’t seem awesome. I’d still go to the Zinn Education Project or Teaching Tolerance for history/social studies lessons. The good news is that lessons are organized well by subject and grade, and, at the very least, the lessons can serve as a starting point. Maybe I didn’t look at enough lessons, because one of my education professors thinks highly of this website. And hey, free ideas and media.
