PBS Teaching Tennessee

Through a continued partnership with the state’s PBS stations, Tennessee students have access to daily educational content through the PBS Teaching Tennessee.

Starting November 30th through the end of January, all six Tennessee PBS stations will offer high quality educational programming, the Winter Foundations Bootcamp, weekdays from 9 a.m. –11 a.m. CT.  PBS Teaching Tennessee will feature instructional content focusing on K-2 literacy and math.  During the fall semester, the schedule will be updated to focus on various grades and subjects. While the majority of lessons will focus on providing instruction for literacy and math for K-2 grades, programming will also include Pre-K lessons and science lessons for grades 3-5.

PBS Teaching Tennessee will be available on all six PBS stations:

Teaching Tennessee classroom lesssons for 1st-8th grade students can be found on the department's YouTube page. All 320 lessons have companion teacher lesson plans and student packets. 

Here are guides for English language arts and math educators and parents to support the use of these at-home lessons:

The following lessons and videos have been designed for review and practice. They are intended to support students during the time of extended school closure. The department recognizes that students will have limited practice support and activities have been designed to reinforce the lesson rather than extend the learning in the lesson.
