Teachers' Domain
Boston's WGBH produces a site for science teaching.
Grade Level: Professional


Teachers' Domain, produced by WGBH Educational Foundation, provides a free multimedia digital library of K-12 resources for science teachers and students. It includes a collection of classroom ready resources, multimedia lesson plans, and professional development resources.
This site has a user-friendly layout that is rich in graphics, video, and sound. QuickTime and Shockwave plug-ins are required.
The content is organized by subject and grade level. Users choose their personal homepage during the free registration process and links are clearly marked on each page. The site can also be searched by keyword, grade level, media type, or permitted use type.

Teachers' Domain supports science-learning experiences with media rich resources that are high impact, engaging and interactive. Life science is the focus of the site and topics include ecology, evolution, genetics, the cell and more. Each of the resources is geared to a specific grade level and correlated to state and national standards. Teachers will find classroom ready video clips, interviews, web-based interactive activities, photographs, animations, images, and text transcriptions from original sources, along with contextual information and lesson plans for effective use in the classroom. Registered users can create sets of resources on a specific topic and save them to share with their students. Students could also use this feature to create a multimedia report on a given topic. Additionally, there are videos of best practice teaching available for professional development purposes. This is a rich resource that science teachers will not want to miss!
