Educators: Lesson Blueprints: Elementary

The Lesson Blueprints resources further provide academic programming options and have been provided to help you enhance and modify the video curriculum with additional lessons, assessment rubrics, and other helpful information. These materials are open ended in that they leave room for the teacher to specify the topic to debate, the subjects of current events to be analyzed, the focus of the film to be created, the theme of the discussion, the quotations to be dissected, the details of the project, etc. Teacher support materials for discussions, question building, and writing prompts can be found in this section as well as lessons introducing students to the core competencies of SEL.
