Pearson and PBS—organizations with renowned content expertise and a mutual love of history and the American story—come together to offer PBS videos to support Pearson’s United States History ©2013. PBS educational content delivers rich media experiences that engage students in exploring curricular concepts and is aligned to the needs of today’s teachers and learners.
These videos, from such sources as American Experience, Ken Burns, and other well-known PBS programs, provide rigorous and relevant context to what students will learn in an upcoming chapter, and give students a framework for the concepts presented.
The videos will be available to students and teachers through the online digital course— both in streaming and downloadable format. Teachers can use each PBS video as an intro or a take a deeper dive into the topic.
Our fully digital programs and ebooks provide cutting-edge online instruction with a seamless transition from the textbook, allowing students to complete assignments, access videos and activities, and take online tests and remediation.
Pearson encourages 21st century learning by infusing the core subjects and themes throughout our programs—Life and Career Skills, Learning and Innovation Skills, and Information, Media, and Technology Skills. The ultimate goal—to ensure that every child is prepared for the 21st century with skills like critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, innovation and global competence.
With Pearson’s interactive whiteboard-ready resources, students become more active and collaborative classroom learners and teachers are able to deliver memorable lessons, engage all types of learners, and reduce class preparation time.
