PA Core & Writing with Technology: Discovery Streaming

As you hopefully know, Keystone subscribes to the Discovery Education web site. Some of you may still know this service as "Unitedstreaming." Although Discovery is best known for their high-quality instructional videos, this web site also includes images, blackline masters, encyclopedia articles, audio files, and more.

Did you know that Discovery Education allows you to search their resources by PA Core Standards? Here's how:

1.  Log in to your Discovery Education account. (Contact me for account information.) Click Curriculum Standards Search at the top of the page beneath the keyword search box.

2.  Choose Draft Academic Standards on the Standards Document dropdown menu. Also select the appropriate subject area and grade.

3.  Click the + to expand the sections and drill down to a specific standard. The standards in blue text are links; clicking on the links will give you a list of resources aligned to that standard. Narrow your search by using the Narrow My Results tool on the left. Don't forget to check out the Related Materials section!
