A Spin Around the Solar System:
The Outer Planets: The Gas Giants
Beyond Mars lie four colorful giant planets
made almost entirely of gases. The planets
have thick atmospheres, lots of moons and
rings, low densities, and rapid rotations, but
they lack a defined, solid surface on which
an astronaut might walk. Each gas giant is
distinctive: immense Jupiter is 1,400 times
larger than Earth; Saturn has wide, colorful
rings; Uranus lies on its side; and Neptune
is so far away sunlight reaching it is 900
times weaker than on Earth.
Inside the Space Station
Meet the scientists, astronauts, and diplomats behind the largest satellite in the
sky today. The International Space Station
is a testament to making the impossible a

The Ultimate Guide Series
Ultimate Guide: Birds of Prey
Ultimate Guide: Octopus
If your students go into raptures over
raptors, they’ll love Ultimate Guide: Birds
of Prey. Birds of prey are born for the
hunt—every part of their anatomy, from
eyes to talons, works together to create an
efficient instrument of pursuit and capture.
Take flight with some of nature’s most accomplished predators.
Eight legs, three hearts, and a wealth of
suction cups--the octopus is one of nature’s
most curious creations. Color-blind, it still
can mimic multicolored backgrounds, and
even use color to communicate. Shy and
retiring, these cephalopods are hard to find,
but Ultimate Guide: Octopus reveals their
secrets, with amazing, up-close footage of a
creature that prefers not to be seen.

Evolution
In 1850, Charles Darwin published The
Origin of the Species in which he postulated
that all plants and animals originated with
a single cell and over time have evolved
into the complex number of species that
we know today. This theory has become the
organizational principle that biologists use
to explain the life sciences.
Reviews how fossils are formed, explores
the techniques of relative dating and radioactive dating, illustrates the geological time
scale, and discusses adaptation, natural
selection, and mutation.

PHYSICAL SCIENCE
This program explores the many different
forms of energy from sound, heat, light, and
chemical energy. One of the greatest forms
of energy is nuclear energy locked within
the nucleus of atoms. Energy can be converted from one form to another and much
of the success of our industrialized society
has been in our ability to harness energy for
our needs. Although classical physicists saw
energy and matter as separate and distinct,
modern physics has shown that the two are
fundamentally linked.

Energy, whether it is sound, light, heat, or
some other form, is propagated as waves.
This program looks at two different types
of waves, longitudinal and traverse waves,
and the common characteristics of all
waves. Sound and light waves are examined in some detail, and then the program
concludes with a look at a modern theory
called the wave-particle duality, which holds
that all matter and energy have characteristics of both waves and particles.

Physical Science Series:
Phases of Matter
This program explores the four different
phases of matter including solids, liquids,
gases, and plasma. The example of water
changing from ice to water liquid to steam
gas vividly illustrates the difficult principle
of energy affecting changes in phase. The
role that energy loss and gain play in phase
changes are illustrated through colorful animated graphics. Concepts and terms such
as melting, freezing, vaporization, condensation, and sublimation are illustrated using
common everyday examples.
This program closely examines the four
states of matter: solid, liquid, gas, and
plasma. Water, as well as other materials,
are used as examples as to why a single
substance can exist in so many different
forms. Through interesting visual examples
of the many uses of water, students learn
about viscosity, elasticity, solids, liquids,
gases, phase changes, Boyle’s Law, Charles’
Law, vaporization, sublimation, melting,

Economics: A Framework for
Teaching the Basic Concepts:
Macroeconomic Concepts
Macroeconomics is the study of the factors
that influence, and result from, the large
scale functions of economies, It is the way
economists measure the behavior and functioning of economies. To do this, economists
quantify aspects of the economics process
using economic aggregates, or averages;
measurements, such as the Gross National
Product; unemployment; and inflation. This
program looks at how these measurements
can provide insights into the health of an
economy, how they impact the purchasing
power of currencies, and ways governments
can control and impact economic aggregates.

Microeconomics is the study of how
markets work; it looks at factors that influence and result from the inner workings
of economies. Specifically, it looks at how
businesses in the market economy go about
using limited resources to produce and
distribute goods and services. This program
demonstrates how the market sets prices
and determines the quantity and nature of
goods and services produced, and demonstrates the roles of competition and regulation. The character of a well-functioning
market economy- with its back-and-forth
flow of money and factors of production-is
analyzed. What happens when the market
process fails, and the tools available to correct market failures are explained.

Alcohol kills more than five times the

love—or not. What we learn at home we take to
our intimate relationships outside the family. Our

we go from the shelter of home to have intimate

two in three by 18. According to researchers, a
quarter of those sexually active teenagers will
contract a sexually transmitted disease. And
those with STDs are two to five times more likely
to contract HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
In America today, most people living with HIV
were infected as teenagers. While most kids
know about AIDS and STDs—and understand
how to avoid them—statistics show that many
aren’t practicing what’s being preached. This
program will explore the reasons why. Is it that
teenagers don’t believe it can happen to them?
Is it that they don’t care? Or is low self-esteem
preventing them from doing the right things
to protect themselves? As more kids turn to
tobacco, experts are now focusing efforts not
on prevention to pick up that first cigarette, but
how to get them off before they are locked into
a lifelong addiction.

to break the rules. The Department of Justice
reports, “Today a 15-year-old is more likely to
commit a violent crime in the U.S. than a 30-yearold.” In this program we will take a look at some of

Reality Matters: High Performance
Health is not just about physical bodies. In a
world that celebrates looks, money, and possessions, it’s our emotional health that will
ultimately determine our happiness. The teen
years are a vulnerable time filled with self-doubt
as well as a great deal of stress. This program
will explore the many influences that shape an
individual’s emotional health, and specific tools
for managing stress and maintaining a positive
self-image.
The frenzied popularity of sports among kids,
parents, and schools has increased in recent
years. Whether it’s T-ball, gymnastics, or a soccer
scholarship, every kid seems to feel the pressure
to be involved in sports. The segments detail the
benefits of sports, physical activity, mental confidence, and the overall competitive, team building
experience, while addressing the risk factors
involved in taking sports to extremes.
In a country obsessed with the perfect body, the
pressure starts early. Once just thought to be an
issue for adolescent girls, the desire to have a
beautiful body is impacting kids as young as seven and has moved to boy’s locker rooms across
the country. But what are the consequences?

Reality Matters:
Prescription for Trouble
Reality Matters:
Under the Influence
The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports
that four million Americans ages 12 and older are
using over-the-counter and prescription medicine
for non-medical reasons. The greatest increase is
among 12- to 17-year-olds. In this program, experts
put forth three explanations for the explosion in
abuse of legal drugs: easier access, a false sense
that these drugs are safe, and a “medicine mindset” in our culture, where kids see adults around
them taking medicine for every conceivable pain
and sadness.
No big deal. That’s what many kids—and even
some parents—think about alcohol. It’s everywhere: in commercials, on billboards, in clubs and
restaurants, in our homes. But disturbing new
research from the American Medical Association
finds that alcohol permanently shrinks the part
of a teenager’s brain that controls memory and
learning. The damage is being done in greater
numbers—and at a younger age than ever. In
addition to brain damage and alcohol poisoning,
getting drunk also puts you at greater risk of
becoming a victim of crime, or even committing
a crime yourself. This program will focus on the
deadly decisions which alcohol can often lead to.

Teens and adolescents in record numbers are becoming hooked on tobacco,
from cigarettes to smokeless tobacco to
boutique cigarettes such as bidis. Through
interviews with students, parents, doctors,

rise of teens using tobacco. The program
explores three themes:
• The selling of tobacco to a new generation of
savvy adolescents—does advertising work?
• The rise in tobacco sales, including smokeless
tobacco and new trends in cigarettes.
• The battle to get kids off tobacco using
techniques such as the nicotine patch—are
young kids truly addicted or are they smoking
for image?

Al’s secret formula,” easy, proven ways to
channel potential arguments-or fights-into
good communication and closer friendships.
This program helps children explore and
accept the feelings that arise when divorce
occurs. Anger, depression, denial, guilt,

to divorce and separation.

all the problems of the day. Lara learns that

At a time when the North and South differed economically and socially, political

versus the Constitution, tariffs, division of

mandates all led to the great war.
The Underground Railroad was not a
railroad and was not underground. It was a
loose-knit network of people who offered
shelter, food, safety, and encouragement to
fugitive slaves on their life-threatening journeys to freedom. This video examines the
institution of slavery-from capture in Africa

Afghanistan:
12 Years of Violence
Chart the history of
Afghanistan, from the Soviet invasion to civil war
between ethnic tribes to
the rise of the Taliban.
This war-torn country
was once home to many
sophisticated, educated,
and artistic people. By the late 1990s, it
became an international center for smuggling drugs and precious stones--and the

The Cronkite Report:
Headlines and Soundbytes
The media lack objectivity. News is often
inaccurate. Producers seek to entertain
rather than inform. Coverage is too negative. These are just a few of the things the
working press has to say about the state
of its profession. Walter Cronkite takes
an unsentimental look at the media, with
some of the biggest names in the business
explaining how news is selected, packaged,
and presented.

A Question of Race

Part 1: A Question of Race
Scientists are unable
to point to a gene that
makes us Black, White,
or Asian. So were these
labels manufactured as
a way to identify a “subspecies” that doesn’t
really exist? Get students
into the important debate on whether race
is an accurate biological identification, or
a damaging artificial identifier made up by
humans. Part 2: How Biased Are You? See
real-life situations of racism in action as
hidden cameras capture ordinary adults
encountering people of different races. Witness how young children perceive people
different from themselves. Psychology experts help us understand why this happens
and show us how racial prejudice plays out
daily in subtle ways.

bodies of water and global wind patterns.
The water cycle is explained, as is El Nino
and La Nina phenomena.
The earth’s surface constantly changes by
way of earth crust movement, volcanoes,
weathering and glacier activity. Human
activities that change the land include
building dams and dikes, pursuing outdated
