WCTE Teachers

Are you a WCTE Teacher? This is the place for You!

The Awards invites teachers across the country to show us how they are innovating in the classroom by submitting a video or image and sharing why they think they are innovative educators. 50 educators will be selected as Innovators—10 of which will win a trip to the PBS Annual Meeting in Austin, TX.
The PBS Teachers Innovation Awards will launch on January 25, 2010 and run through March 12, 2010. Stations who are interested in promoting the Awards should plan to begin promotional efforts on January 27, 2010.
Beyond the Awards, the Innovators will be enlisted to partner with PBS and local stations to encourage the use of public digital media in classrooms across the country.

On February 1, 2010, WCTE is launching the PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest, a national competition designed to promote the advancement of children’s reading skills through hands-on, active learning.

The beautiful productions often help pave the way for students who may not otherwise connect to classic literature and they provide educators with new ways of interpreting and presenting beloved favorites. We would love to hear stories about how educators have integrated MASTERPIECE programs, teaching guides,...

“The Legendary Battle Between Ice Cream and Dogs”

By Janet English “Where ARE you?  Why aren't you home from school?” The mother yelled at her son because it was late and he hadn't come home from school.  She was rightfully concerned. When he was later awarded the Grand Prize at the California Student Media Festival, she probably felt better for keeping his dinner warm. That was in years past when I was director of the California Student Media Festival. I relinquished that directorship when I returned to teaching and then became...
