State Education Department, PBS team up to provide instructional programming

The Tennessee Department of Education is partnering with PBS stations
across the state to offer 1st-8th grade students up to 30 hours of
standards-aligned instructional lessons per week during times of COVID-19
school closures.

Beginning today, 30-minute segments aired from 11 am to 1 pm EDT each
weekday on the main channels of each of the six PBS stations across the
state, including our own East Tennessee PBS. In addition, viewers have the
option to watch or record up to four more hours of content that will be
broadcast during the overnight hours.

The programming will cover English language arts (ELA) and math for first
through sixth grades.

For seventh and eighth graders, recorded video lessons will be available
online starting April 13th.

Accompanying lesson plans and work packets will be posted on the
department’s website for teachers and families to use, adapt, and build
upon. Access the lesson plans and student work packets at
www.tn.gov/education/pbsteaching.

The department said they will also make all videos available on its YouTube
channel after they air.
