For Educators

Welcome Educators! The resources offered here are designed to help you use the "Beyond Brown: Pursuing the Promise" video program and companion Web site. The lessons plans and activities developed for grades 6-12 present a multidisciplinary approach that use television and computers as learning tools in the subject areas of social studies, U.S. history, mathematics, language arts and government.

Each lesson contains Teacher Notes and Student Activity Sheets. The Activity Sheets can be downloaded, printed, copied, and distributed to students. The Teacher Notes for each lesson provide learning objectives, related national content standards, a list of tools and materials needed, the time necessary to complete each lesson, extensions and adaptations, assessment recommendations, and the teaching strategy.

"Beyond Brown: Pursuing the Promise" may be taped off-air by teachers and used in the classroom for one year. (For more information on teacher resources to accompany PBS programs and on PBS extended taping rights for educators, please visit the PBS TeacherSource Web site.) After one year, educators may purchase a copy of the program from Firelight Media (www.firelightmedia.org).
