This session will introduce attendees to the resources available on PBS Learningmedia.org, with a focus on video testimonies of Vietnam Veterans recorded by WILL AM-FM-TV in Urbana, IL. The testimonies, and the series of interactive lesson plans that accompany them, will help educators connect their schools to the new PBS series, “The Vietnam War,” by Ken Burns. The overview of PBS Learningmedia.org will help educators to explore the wealth of lesson plans and resources available from PBS.
