Iowa Public Television has received a grant to produce a new series of online education resources for our nation’s classrooms. The IPTV team will be creating a series of Web-based curriculum resources related to topics and themes introduced within the nationally syndicated television program, Market to Market, produced by IPTV and reaching more than 70% of non-metro, farming-dependent counties in the United States.
By leveraging the timely and relevant content of the weekly Market to Market program, this project will build upon core subject content and emphasize the skills, knowledge and expertise today’s students must master to compete globally and become successful 21st century citizens. The project will target students in grade 9-12 nationally, and will connect with learning outcomes in the subject areas of agriculture, STEM, social studies, language arts and others. These online resources will be freely available for all educators.
We’re seeking input from teachers like you to help inform our planning for this project. Please take a few minutes and complete a short survey about your curriculum needs, relevant student characteristics, and high-interest content connections to the themes covered in Market to Market programs.
