Teachers

HEC-TV creates curriculum for new productions, in order 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, we 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, we offer teachers several different types of learning activities, all which reinforce and assess the lesson.
