HEC-TV creates curriculum for new productions to more fully connect the station with K-12 students and schools. Educators know that quality curricula must relate to standards, whether these be Common Core State Standards or Missouri’s Knowledge Standards. Led by scripts and background information, HEC-TV staff educators build a framework around which to wrap curriculum for each show. Each curriculum starts with an overview of the lesson, time allotment, and most importantly, the learning objectives. Needs for each student and class are different, so after the body of the lesson is accomplished, teachers might utilize the various types of suggested learning activities, all which reinforce and assess the lesson.
Program materials, relevant standards, pre and post program activities, related activities, and/or enrichment materials may be found under the Educational Material tab on each program page as well as through a curriculum search below. Search results from FIND CURRICULUM will be listed from the most to the least currently created program for which educational material is available.
