Discovery Education has announced significant enhancements to its Discovery Education Streaming Plus service. Featuring hundreds of model lessons, performance tasks and custom assessments, the enhanced Discovery Education Streaming Plus engages students with interactive features and supports educators at all levels as they integrate the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) into classroom instruction.

Discovery Education Streaming Plus’ model lessons and instructional exemplars demonstrate for educators what the new Common Core State Standards look like in action, while the addition of customized assessments to the service save teachers valuable time by putting curriculum, instruction and assessment resources all in one place. In addition to supporting educators, these new enhancements promote the development of critical thinking, problem solving and higher order thinking skills for students.

Discovery Education Streaming Plus also features more than 155,000 dynamic digital learning objects supporting all subject areas and learning styles, including videos, skill builders, games, audio files, images, writing prompts and encyclopedia articles. It will be available to current school district partners at no additional cost.

In addition, new interactive student features like My DE and Board Builder have been added to transform classrooms by creating an environment that encourages engagement, inquiry and creativity. My DE is a new destination providing students individualized learning and exploration resources via different pathways through content. Students are encouraged to become content creators through the Board Builder tool by gathering evidence, creating arguments and supporting their claims, all while practicing and developing higher-order thinking skills.
