WOW! Peter's life is a car-crash.

In the finale this Sunday, with his personal and political life spiraling out of control, we see Peter Laurence's personal life philosophy put to the ultimate test: Can you really get away with anything if you just brazen it out?

INDEPENDENT LENS: JONATHAN SCOTT'S POWER TRIP
Monday  9pm

Property Brothers co-host and home-renovation expert Jonathan Scott is on a mission to flip the switch on how Americans access power.

Scott travels the country, talking with key figures across America’s energy landscape including Bernie Sanders, Al Gore, Tea Party co-founder Debbie Dooley, environmentalists, farmers, coal miners, and solar panel installers, Jonathan Scott’s Power Trip highlights an issue that impacts everyone.

Check out the PBS Parents Thanksgiving Collection for many ideas and ways to make this Thanksgiving a special day for your child and your family.

FOR PARENTS & TEACHERS - LPB'S TOP 5 EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES

Grades K-2:  Empathy | An ARTHUR Interactive Comic - Explore the topic of empathy in this interactive comic, So Funny I Forgot to Laugh, based on the characters and storyline from the PBS children’s series ARTHUR. When Arthur takes his teasing too far, it upsets Sue Ellen. Can Arthur find a way to apologize for bullying Sue Ellen and save their friendship?

 

Grades 3-5: Prairie Portrait Interactive Science Lesson - In this lesson, students investigate a prairie inhabitant--the bee. Students gather information about a bee’s internal and external parts and use this information as evidence to make a claim about how the bee’s internal and external parts work together as a system to ensure survival. The lesson supports diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility by focusing on an insect familiar to learners in most environments and providing contextual definitions for vocabulary as well as illustrations and video, helping learners from areas without prairie to engage with and understand the lesson.

Grades 6-8: A History of Thanksgiving - This self-paced lesson provides historical context for Thanksgiving and presents students with writing-based activities. This is an activity that students can complete, or it can be assigned as a take-home activity (pending computer and Internet access) for family participation.

Grades 9-12:   Analyzing Primary Source Media - In this self-paced interactive lesson, students examine primary source media—specifically, news footage carried on Boston television channels over the last five decades. Like historians who analyze documents, photographs, and other primary sources to learn more about the people, issues, and events of the past, students watch news footage on subjects including the 1979 oil crisis, the 1974 Boston school desegregation controversy, and affirmative action. They practice three steps—observe, interpret, and question—to analyze the media. For a final assignment, they select footage and write an essay or blog post that contains their analysis and reflects their understanding of the content in its historical context.

 

Teachers:  VOICES IN EDUCATION The Importance of Windows and Mirrors in Stories - Do your students see themselves in texts you teach? Seeing ourselves in literature is a gift. Here’s help for selecting text through a critical race lens to ensure reading is an empowering experience for every student.
