I love the History Channel, Discovery Channel, A&E, etc as resources for learning. But we don't watch a lot of TV and I would miss a lot of really great educational programs without this. I receive email alerts, lesson plans and study guides, and a seasonal magazine from the History channel featuring special programs that they and their affiliate channels will be airing. I then go set my DVR.
All of this is through the History Channel Classroom. I love this resource. I signed up as a teacher, with our school name, BrightStar Academy a little over a year ago and have even received a free 4 part DVD of covering American history, from the first explorers to present day in the past. DH loves that DVD more than A LOL.
Go check it out if you don't already use this incredible resource.
And no, I get nothing for plugging them. I was recording "History of the World in 2 Hours" tonight, and A was watching it before bed and was enthralled again, and I wanted to share. Many of the programs are geared toward middle school and high school aged students, but A LOVES everyone of them.
