Teacher Resources

We recently created new iPad orientation videos and Common Sense Media has released revised, grade-level specific lessons for students. These revised lessons are standards-aligned, include a wealth of multimedia resources, and a quick assessment for each lesson. These new lessons also include links to help parents understand the concepts covered in class, as well as ideas they can use to support their children in making good digital decisions.

To get started, you will need to create a Common Sense Media account (this will only take a minute or two). Click HERE for directions.
