Super Site of the Week

While Teacher’s Domain: Digital Media for the Classroom and Professional Development targets K-12 instruction, it features many resources appropriate for the college classroom with little or no modification.  The site includes resources from Nova, Nature, and a host of other broadcast organizations. From their homepage:

Teachers’ Domain is a free digital media service for educational use from public broadcasting and its partners. You’ll find thousands of media resources, support materials, and tools for classroom lessons, individualized learning programs, and teacher professional learning communities.”

A happy place for browsing, to be sure.  For example,  Some Genes are Dominant would fit nicely into my A&P class, while a developmental writing colleague might use Baseball and Social Change: The Story of Roberto Clemente. The “Data Collection and Analysis” section of the mathematics section has 40 separate resources.

I never want to pass up a great resource just because the label doesn’t say “college.”
