Use a variety of search strategies to efficiently locate video segments, images, songs, sound effects, encyclopedia articles, audio files, events, lesson plans, animations, and more.
Searching for Resources
There are three ways to find resources for your classroom:
Keyword Search: To conduct a keyword search, click on the magnifying glass at the top and use the Search bar to conduct targeted keyword searches. The search results contain all the titles that match the keyword you entered, which can be filtered by resource type, language, copyright, and more.
By Subject: Explore curated resources related to an area of instruction. Select the topic, such as English/Language Arts, Math, or Visual/Performing Arts, and view a channel of curated content for that subject and your preferred grade level.
By Standard: Enables you to search for resources that directly instruct—or support the instruction of—a state or national education standard. Choose By Standard, then select the standards document, subject, grade level, and year of adoption (if applicable).
Being able to filter results provides teachers the opportunity to tailor the resources to specific needs of students - whether that's finding a video in a different language or finding reading passages at varying lexile levels. After search results are displayed, there are two sets of filters you can use to narrow down your results.
- At the top, filter your results by service, grade level, and resource type.
- On the left, the filters will vary depending on what has been selected at the top, but include language, lexile and reading levels, topics, details (such as closed captions, primary source, quiz, etc), publisher, copyright date, and more.
When exploring search results, look for the NEW flag on a resource. This means it was added to Discovery Education in the last 60 days!
