We’re excited to offer educators daily, standards-aligned curriculum activities tied to each day’s show and a user-friendly, searchable library of Channel One News’ award-winning video segments and activities. Channel One News Curriculum, winner of Tech & Learning’s 2014 Award of Excellence, offers the daily newscast along with a three-part instructional routine that uses nonfiction video and text as a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary teaching resource. Student-centered activities integrate ELA with core subject areas, such as science, math, social studies and geography, and are supplemented with vocabulary, discussion questions, quiz questions and information about the standards that align to the activities. The instructional routine includes:
- Extend: Engaging timelines and slideshows extend the concepts introduced in the video segment and support differentiated instruction using images and text.
- Write: The writing prompts are focused on nonfiction and expository writing, which helps students practice a variety of nonfiction writing types such as lists, informational text, persuasive arguments and captions.
- Assess: Students are asked to complete short, formative assessments to showcase their understanding and to help inform teachers’ ongoing instruction.
As educators increasingly look to customize their own lesson plans, the Channel One News Video Library is a comprehensive resource of Channel One News’ video segments and activities created with one goal in mind: to help students interpret the news and spark important conversations around current events.
The Channel One News Video Library includes:
- More than 3,000 Channel One News video segments, searchable by grade, subject area and keywords
- More than 2,000 video transcripts
- Interactive, standards-aligned content including slideshows, timelines, discussion questions, writing prompts and quizzes tied to specific video segment
