Educational Toolkits For Teachers & Parents

For discussing complicated subjects raised in KERA broadcasts, reporting projects and events


Welcome to our collection of toolkits designed to help teachers and parents discuss sensitive and complex topics at school and home. We created most of them for use alongside our award-winning reporting projects, documentaries and outreach events, as well as high-profile documentaries from PBS.

The toolkits below provide:

• Lesson plans, discussion questions and other teaching guidance
• Links to news articles, biographies, background essays on noteworthy people and events
• Video and audio clips of people speaking about their lives, work, beliefs and historical events in which they participated.
