Curriculum Alignment to Digital Content

During Discovery Education's curriculum alignment session, participants will learn how to use the extensive library of Discovery Education assets, including video, audio, images, articles, songs, and more, to link specific benchmarks to discrete resources that have been aligned to your district's curriculum through the Discovery Education Curriculum Alignment Services.
