Teaching Channel

Teaching Channel

Wednesdays at 11pm starting October 26

The Teaching Channel is a groundbreaking series that highlights inspiring teaching going on right now in America’s K-12 classrooms.

Produced by WNET in New York, the series is a multiplatform showcase for teacher development, and will appeal to teachers looking for models of great teaching and to parents and others who care about America’s future.
Each week’s episode is a one-hour magazine-style program that:

  • Showcases effective and replicable teaching in action.
  • Uses real teachers and students at work in real classrooms.
  • Engages viewers with interesting characters and authentic situations.
  • Covers all subjects and grade levels.
Teaching Channel programming is observational, documentary and character-driven, harnessing the best narrative qualities of compelling television. It’s real life unfolding – mostly, but not always, inside the classroom – in front of the camera. The Teaching Channel provides an entirely new and authentic dimension to professional development and teacher preparation. Teaching Channel is funded by the Gates Foundation, with additional support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. Tune into WSIU for an inspiring episode every Wednesday at 11pm, beginning Oct. 26. Learn more.
