Engage students with GPB resources            JANUARY 2018

The start of a new year is a time to rejuvenate, celebrate, and reflect. And with a new semester upon us, many teachers will use this time to seek new resources, strategies, and opportunities to enhance their practice and students' learning. 

That's why GPB Education is continuing its commitment to create and curate exceptional free content for Georgia teachers and why we're kicking off 2018 by highlighting 365 free educational resources for 365 new days!

Every year, Martin Luther King Jr. Day is celebrated on the third Monday of January; this year, we honor the civil rights leader on January 15th. Use our immersive virtual learning journey to teach students about the tremendous courage and impact of key players in the Civil Rights Movement, including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This standards-based virtual learning journey transports students to a critical period of time in United States history.

Brimming with comprehensive, cross-curricular content, including 14 videos, primary source images and documents, compelling photo galleries, interactive maps, artwork, music, and more, this virtual collection invites students into an engaging exploration of some of the most significant events and people of the Civil Rights Movement.
