What televised instruction is the State making available for children home from school?
Starting Monday, April 6, children throughout New Jersey will be able to tune into NJTV, New Jersey's public television network, for NJTV Learning Live, a program featuring lessons taught by New Jersey teachers.
The initiative was created through a partnership between NJTV, the New Jersey Education Association, and the Department of Education.
Each weekday, the NJTV Learning Live will offer four programs for grades 3 through 6, and will cover subjects including English language arts, math, science, social studies, and a "special" such as art, music or physical education.
9 am: Third Grade
10 am: Fourth Grade
11 am: Fifth Grade
12 noon: Sixth Grade
All will be aired on NJTV. You can locate your local channel on NJTV's "Where to Watch" webpage.
Each hourlong segment features a lesson recorded by a teacher from his or her home. The New Jersey Education Association is working with the Department of Education to invite teachers to participate in the broadcasts, with the initial outreach attracting more than 200 educators who volunteered to provide instruction.
