Teaching in Room 9

Nine PBS is producing two hours of literacy, math, science and arts instruction for prekindergarten through 3rd grades, weekdays from 11:30 am–1:30 pm, free of charge on television. The grade-appropriate instruction, taught by committed local educators at home, ensures all kids in our region have access to quality teaching during the academic year shutdown and into the summer, regardless of access to internet or computers.

The new summertime season of Teaching in Room 9 starts June 7 and runs through August 13. Turn on Nine PBS weekdays from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm and you’ll find summer-camp-themed lessons from local educators. You can feel confident that kids are being enriched this summer with quality lessons linked to educational standards.
