Charlotte, NC. (Tuesday, January 30, 2024) Discovery Education today unveiled a new collection of engaging, high-quality digital learning resources supporting Black History Month observances. Discovery Education is the worldwide edtech leader whose state-of-the-art digital platform nurtures student curiosity and supports learning wherever it takes place.  

The following resources are now available for users of the award-winning Discovery Education Experience K-12 learning platform: 

  • Civil Rights Ready-to-Use Resources: Through the DE Original Series, Need to Know, students travel through time to investigate the Civil Rights Movement. Each episode is paired with Ready-to-Use Lessons and PDF activities that align with the topics covered and feature additional historical context and primary source resources.  
  • Happy Black History Month video: In this new video from Sesame Workshop for students in grades PK-2, Elmo, Gabrielle, Tamir, and Abby come together to celebrate the contributions of Black and African American communities. 

All these resources and more are available on the Celebrating Black History channel within Discovery Education Experience. Connecting educators to a vast collection of high-quality, standard-aligned content, ready-to-use digital lessons, intuitive quiz and activity creation tools, and professional learning resources, Discovery Education’s K-12 platform facilitates the creation of engaging instructional experiences for all students.  

“At Discovery Education, we are committed to providing educators digital content that helps all students see themselves in the real-world,” said Robin Porter, Vice President of Digital Content at Discovery Education. “This new content collection for Black History Month ensures educators have high-quality resources for their Black History Month observances.” 

Discovery Education also offers many free resources educators can integrate into their Black History Month observances. Among the free resources are:   

  • STEM Career Profiles: The Black History Month collection from the STEM Careers Coalition celebrates the careers of Black leaders in STEM during Black History Month and beyond. The collection of dynamic, on-demand resources supports educators’ efforts to drive deeper student engagement by connecting classroom lessons to the real-world. Career profile videos show students a variety of STEM careers across software engineering, chemistry, and technology support. 

The STEM Careers Coalition solves critical gaps in representation in the STEM professional workforce. The Coalition is an alliance of industries and non-profit organizations that has provided equitable access to STEM resources and career connections since its launch in 2019. The Coalition will continue to ignite student curiosity and influence a diverse future STEM workforce and reach 10 million teachers and students by 2025. 

  • Virtual Field Trip: The Courage to Act Virtual Field Trip shares the stories of young people standing up as individuals, groups, or as a community to make the world a better place. Students meet a peer who has created a project that stands up against injustice, hear about survivors of the Holocaust, and learn from community leaders. An accompanying educator guide provides teachers with materials and activities for before, during, and after the virtual field trip. 

This virtual field trip is part of Teaching with Testimony, a program with USC Shoah Foundation that connects students to the power of testimony from the survivors and witnesses of genocide, inspiring students to find their voices and act for a better future.
