New Year! New Items to Check Out!

If you haven't tried our "unitedstreaming" videos yet, take one for a spin. There are more than 4,000 full-length video programs that have been broken out into 40,000+ content-specific video clips that can be streamed or downloaded directly for use in your classroom. More importantly, the video titles can be searched by selecting the Indiana Standard you wish to reinforce with your students. Use the link on the "Websites' Link Bar" to the right to get to "unitedstreaming".

Other items of note from Discovery Education, the producers of "unitedstreaming"
  • Discovery Education Science Connection is an online supplemental science resource for middle school teachers. Visit
  • Look at the project demonstrations in the Professional Development section of unitedstreaming for ideas on creating living-history projects.
  • Construct interactive student centers and imbed video content into interactive presentations so students can select their own learning path.

If you think you need more help using this great tool, keep an eye out for after-school workshops coming soon in February, March, and April. In fact, you automatically can be notified of any new workshops, simply by signing up for that feature in STI-PD. Don't remember your username and password for STI-PD? Give Amy Leach, IMS secretary, an email or a call and she will be able to help you.
