Abstract:   Beginning in 1861, the Civil War divided the country, pitting "brother against brother" in a conflict that threatened to permanently divide the union. If not for the dedication
            and firm resolve of Abraham Lincoln to maintain the Union during this difficult time, the United States might have ceased to exist. In Abraham Lincoln, kids will examine the
            life of this country boy from Kentucky, who rose to become President of the United States and guided his country through one of its darkest hours while speaking out against
            slavery at a time when many were too afraid to take a stand. (Abraham Lincoln)

Abstract:   The programs feature archival footage and documents, and includes interviews with noted historians, military authorities, engineers and war correspondents. The Alamo:
            Remember the Alamo - As a half-century of hostilities erupted in the Texas Revolution, a small group of filibusters, Texians, and Tejanos made a desperate stand against
            Santa Anna's army in a small San Antonio mission. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, politicians and diplomats wrangled over the rich territories of Texas and Florida. How
            should the Alamo be remembered? Depending upon who tells the story, the epic battle is related as either a tale of courageous freedom fighters, or of rebellious traitors. The
            Alamo: The Real West: The Battle of the Alamo - The Alamo is nearly unrivaled in American history as a steadfast symbol of courage and self-sacrifice. Narrator Kenny
            Rogers reveals the true lives of the men behind the legends - men like Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie and William Barret Travis - whose real ambitions, miscalculations and
            undeniable heroics were just as compelling as the tall tales that have long been told about them. (The Alamo: Volume 4)

Abstract:   Plants can survive in even the harshest of environments, from the freezing Arctic to the arid desert. In All About Plant Adaptation, join young plant lovers as they uncover
            some of the amazing ways that plants have adapted over millions of years, enabling them to survive almost anywhere on Earth. Discover how some plants living in cold, arctic
            climates or dry, arid regions have adapted by remaining inactive, or dormant, for long periods of time. Examine how some plants have evolved to survive under the lush, thick
            canopy of the rainforest. Find out how epiphytes, like some orchids, are able to obtain their water and nutrients right out of the air! Learn about other ways that plants have
            adapted either to protect themselves from predators or to help them reproduce to ensure their survival. A hands-on experiment that explores how the Venus flytrap has

Abstract:   Viewers learn that the atmosphere is a balance of gases and sunlight that help sustain life on Earth. Chapters in the program include Atmospheres in the Solar System, which
            discusses the different atmospheres that exist on the other planets. Composition of the Earth's Atmosphere explains that 78 percent of nitrogen and 21 percent of oxygen,
            argon and greenhouse gases make up Earth's atmosphere. Learn about the troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere and thermosphere layers of Earth in The Structure of Earth's
            Atmosphere. In Atmosphere and Solar Radiation, viewers discover how different types of solar radiation affect temperature changes. The process of conduction and
            convection is examined in Atmospheric Conduction and Convection, while Atmospheric Balancing explores life in the lower troposphere. Find out how weather occurs in
            Hydrological Cycle and understand the effects of global warming in The Carbon Cycle. Finally, The Atmosphere and Climate Change discusses how man-produced carbon

Abstract:   Viewers learn that our planet is enveloped in air, known as the atmosphere, with several specific layers, each having its own properties, depending on altitude. Air's weight
            pressing on Earth is called atmospheric pressure and it contributes to weather patterns, as does the sun. Together they "drive the process" of weather and make life on Earth
            possible. This live-action program also focuses on the angle of the sun's rays, which also determines climate in various regions; however, industrial activity and greenhouse
            gases seem to be disturbing this delicate balance. (Atmospheric Pressure & Solar Energy)

Abstract:   In Chromatography, viewers learn a valuable technique for the rapid separation of chemical mixtures. After the scientific principles of paper chromatography are conveyed
            through real-life demonstrations and clear graphics, students move into the lab to analyze a number of ink samples, calculating Rf values for the pigments found in each
            sample. Students investigate the experimental techniques used to determine if two samples are identical by creating a unique visual "fingerprint" of each tested substance.
            They also explore the factors affecting each separation and extend the investigation by choosing different solvents for the mobile phase. See how gas chromatography is used

            launched a surprise attack that nearly defeated Grant's Army of the Tennessee. Confusion on the Confederate lines and last-minute Union reinforcements gave Grant the
            victory, but with over three thousand dead and nearly twenty-thousand wounded, the two-day Battle of Shiloh showed both sides of the brutal face of a war that had barely
            begun. Civil War Combat: The Bloody Lane at Antietam - On September 17, 1862, Union General McClellan - possessing superior numbers, an advantageous position, and
            his opponent's battle plans - managed, through an excess of caution and poor execution, to turn an overwhelming rout of Confederate forces into a "strategic victory." In that
            one day, more Americans were killed in battle than on any other day in the nation's military history. The battle of Antietam halted Lee's advance into Maryland - but cost
            McClellan his career. (Civil War: Volume 5)

            Combat: The Wheatfield at Gettysburg Ordered by General Meade to take a position at Cemetery Ridge, Union Major General Sickles instead repositioned his III Corps half
            a mile away at the Peach Orchard, exposing his company to attack from multiple sides and forcing Meade to send waves of reinforcements across twenty exposed acres soon
            to be known as the "Bloody Wheatfield." After just a few hours of confusing back-and-forth battle, thousands of men lay dead or dying. Civil War Combat: The Tragedy at
            Cold - Harbor In March, 1864, General Ulysses Grant took supreme command of the Union army with one goal - relentless pursuit of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
            Grant and his army caught up to Lee near the crossroads of Cold Harbor, launched a nearly suicidal assault against entrenched Confederate forces, losing seven thousand men
            in just minutes - a battle one Rebel officer called "murder." The ten-day massacre cost the Union over twelve thousand men, but was Lee's final victory. (Civil War: Volume

Abstract:   Teachers are urged to integrate grammar instruction with lessons on writer's craft, but what does that look like in real classrooms with real kids? In The Craft of Grammar,
            Jeff Anderson shows how he brings grammar and craft together meaningfully for student writers. Jeff and his sixth-grade students move easily from analyzing sentences to
            freewrites in writer's notebooks to "express-lane edits" of their writing in daily workshops. The lessons, individual conferences, and small-group activities on the video
            demonstrate how to use high-quality children's and young adult literature as mentor texts and as an alternative to "Daily Oral Language." This sixty-minute DVD includes
            examples of: developing whole-class lessons focused on short mentor text; linking the writer's notebook to grammar instruction;assisting students in individual conferences as
            they test new writing strategies and analyze text;scaffolding learning through guided practice and small-group work;creating mnemonic devices to help students retain key
            rules;celebrating student success and tactfully correcting errors.Jeff presents simple and imaginative tools and memory devices from the whoop of the AAAWWUBIS to the
            clever and catchy FANBOYS that help students see the value of grammar and mechanics in crafting powerful writing and retain that knowledge. (The Craft of Gammar)

Abstract:   Ever think that the government doesn't know best? Can the news media always be counted on to get the story straight? Drew Carey hosts four teaching videos that challenge
            some commonly held assumptions. 1.) Traffic Gridlock highlights innovative private-sector solutions to the problem of traffic congestion. How does a speedy trip on the
            "Drew Carey Freeway" sound? How about a helicopter ride to work? 2.) Living Large challenges the claim that the American middle class is being squeezed. The media and
            politicians tell us that it's all doom and gloom for those of us who are neither millionaires nor welfare cases. What do you think? 3.) Dance Ban is a modern-day "Footloose"
            story. In Arizona, a steak house featuring live music went into business. Then the county officials invoked an ordinance that banned dancing. So go ahead and eat - but watch
            that toe-tapping! 4.) Officials in National City (California), a predominantly Hispanic community, pushed to tear down an athletic center for struggling kids to make way for
            luxury condos. Why would they do that? (The Drew Carey Project: Volume 1)

Abstract:   NOVA travels to the quarantined city of Kikwit in the Democratic Republic of the Congo to witness the battle against the Ebola virus, one of the world's most lethal diseases.
            The virus was first identified there in 1995. It often kills by dissolving victims' internal organs and connective tissue. Watch how disease specialists traced the origins of the
            Ebola outbreak by compiling a "chain of death" of the epidemic. (Ebola: The Plague Fighers)

Abstract:   Born into a life of wealth and opportunity, Eleanor Roosevelt chose to devote herself to those who were less fortunate. Human rights, poverty, world peace -- no problem was
            too large for her to tackle. Through archival footage and stills, kids will examine the life of this passionate activist, who grew from a shy, self-conscious girl into a strong,
            outspoken woman admired by people all over the world. From her years of redefining the role of First Lady during the Great Depression and World War II to her role as a
            leader in creating the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, discover why this great American was often referred to as "Eleanor Everywhere," and see how her words and

Abstract:   What do radios, microwave ovens and X-ray machines have in common? They all use different forms of electromagnetic energy to do work. In Electromagnetic Energy, learn
            that cosmic rays from space and visible light are also part of the family of energy waves known as the electromagnetic spectrum. Discover that electromagnetic energy travels
            in waves through space and can also move through solid materials. Fast-paced visuals and dynamic graphics help explain that the size of the waves determines their position
            in the spectrum as well as how much energy they contain. A fun demonstration illustrates that magnetic and electric forces are different aspects of electromagnetic energy,
            while a hands-on investigation proves that a light bulb radiates both visible light and infrared waves. (Electromagnetic Energy)

Abstract:   As one of the oldest settlements in North America, Quebec was first surveyed by French explorer Jacques Cartier and later founded by Samuel de Champlain in 1608. While
            Quebec began as a very small outpost, the settlement quickly became the center of New France as the French colonists became expert trappers and established relationships
            with both the Huron and the Iroquois Indians. Explore the daily life of the early French Canadians and trace the development of this unique colony. Part of the Colonial Life

Abstract:   From mushrooms to molds, fungi have always proven to be tricky subjects for the scientists who have studied them. Despite sharing certain characteristics with both animals
            and plants, these strange and wondrous organisms are in a class by themselves -- the Kingdom Fungi. In Fungi, students will examine the characteristics of these simple
            organisms, from their unusual methods of consuming food to their use of spores in reproduction. They'll be introduced to the mighty mold that produces penicillin and some
            deadly mushrooms that are far from being your grocery store variety. In addition, a hands-on investigation reveals the secret of how yeast makes bread dough rise. One of four
            volumes in the Simple Organisms in Action DVD Series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library in Action Collection. This title

Abstract:   Commemorate NASA's 50th anniversary with this stunning high-definition series chronicling the inside story of the space agency's epic endeavors. Nine new astronauts arrive
            at NASA - their mission, to test all the procedures required to land men on the moon and bring them safely back to earth. Each Gemini mission launches two men into space,
            leading to some of NASA's greatest moments - Ed White's spacewalk, the first orbital rendezvous of Gemini 6 and 7, and Neil Armstrong's first space docking. The missions,
            the people, and the triumphs of space exploration are revealed through exclusive interviews with celebrated astronauts including John Glenn, Buzz Aldrin and Charlie Duke,
            and newly-digitized, original mission footage from NASA's secret film vaults. (Gemini: Friends and Rivals)

Abstract:   Genocide, the systematic destruction of a group of people, associated most readily with the Holocaust, tragically remains a major global issue today. Despite the lessons
            learned from planned exterminations such as the Armenian Massacre, the international response was limited in subsequent genocides in countries like Cambodia and Rwanda.
            This show defines genocide, explores the nature and causes of the crime, and shows students how the world community attempts to monitor global conditions and prevent
            future atrocities. (Genocide)

Abstract:   Your hosts, Samantha and Robert, take viewers on a field trip to explore the various ways children get to school. We see kids on the school bus, riding their bikes, walking,
            skateboarding, or getting a ride with parents. First we see the wrong way or the bad habits that kids pick up-pushing and shoving on the bus, not wearing helmets, crossing the
            street between parked cars, wearing headphones on bikes, etc. With the help of Officer Davis, viewers then see the correct and safe way to get to school. Your students will
            learn important bus, bike, pedestrian, skateboard and car/driving rules. Throughout the video, the theme of "being responsible" for one's self and one's actions is reinforced. A
            must-have for your K-4 classes, children's organizations, police & safety programs. This program is sure to be a hit with both students and their parents. (Getting to School

Abstract:   A major aspect of globalization is the increased interconnectedness of the world economy. Thanks to transportation and communications technologies, trillions of dollars
            worth of currencies, goods and services flash across the world each day. Free trade advocates stress that nations, which have embraced global trade policies, have benefited
            tremendously. However, "fair traders" say that the rules of the global economy are unfair and that only a few benefit, causing an increased gap between rich and poor. Global
            Economic Issues explores the early wave of globalization, explains the post-World War II trend toward increased government control of the economy and examines issues
            associated with the recent wave of economic globalization. (Global Economic Issues)

Abstract:   There has always been a struggle to balance the goals of economic development with the need to protect the environment. With world population growing and global climate
            change threatening to affect us all, never has that balance been more important. Today, the developed world uses much of the world's energy resources to fuel its modern
            lifestyle and contributes to the majority of global greenhouse gases. However, billions of people in the developing world crave the same material benefits, leading to such
            fears as resource shortages and increased global warming. Students will learn about the positive and negative effects of industrialization, and how international efforts, such as
            the Kyoto Treaty, are attempting to manage economic development in order to protect the global environment. (Global Environmental Issues)

Abstract:   Advances in science and technology have transformed the lives of people all over the world. However, billions of people in the developing world do not have access to even
            the basics of technology, which contributes heavily to malnourishment, disease and political instability. Also, because of the growing "digital divide," many people are in
            danger of literally being cut off from the rest of the world. This show addresses the benefits and drawbacks associated with information technologies and smart weapons,
            explores the hopes and fears surrounding the development of genetically modified foods, and helps students understand the debate over lowering the cost of life-saving

Abstract:   What is the force that puts the thrill in thrill rides? Gravity, of course! One of the biggest challenges for Imagineers in designing theme park attractions, like Disney's Rockin'
            Roller Coaster and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, is figuring out the best way to work with-and sometimes against-gravity's constant 1G force. Students learn to define
            gravity and explain the relationship between gravity, mass, and distance. Best of all, they will be able to apply an understanding of forces to explain the feeling of
            weightlessness on a rollercoaster ride. Cool! Each Imagineering DVD includes a bonus "try it yourself" experiment and an interactive activity to reinforce key learnings.

Abstract:   The programs feature archival footage and documents, and includes interviews with noted historians, military authorities, engineers and war correspondents. Beyond Desert
            Storm, a 2001 three-part miniseries on the 1991 Gulf War, Operation Desert Storm. Operation Desert Storm: The Air Campaign - Tomahawk missiles, Stealth bombers,
            traditional F-111 and F-5 bombers, and Apache and Cobra helicopters cleared the way for the war on the ground. Operation Desert Storm: The Ground War - A new
            generation of tanks, global positioning systems and the Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (Joint STARS) allowed the coalition to carry out General
            Schwarzkopf's bold plan in only four days. Operation Desert Storm: The Final Showdown - The Republican Guard made a desperate effort to stop the coalition advance,
            while Iraqi forces destroyed Kuwait's infrastructure and industry. BONUS Program: Weapons of War: Smart Bombs - America discovered a unique new war weapon: the
            precision-guided munitions known as "Smart Bombs." Delivering devastating payloads with unprecedented accuracy, these satellite-guided weapons could target individual
            buildings in central Baghdad itself, eliminating their targets while causing a minimum of civilian casualties. (Gulf War: Volume 12)

Abstract:   First-grade teacher Debbie Miller chronicles her work teaching reading comprehension in her popular book Reading with Meaning. In this three-part series, Debbie takes you
            beyond comprehension instruction, and shows how she sustains a thoughtful primary reading program that challenges and supports readers of all abilities and needs. Program
            1: Essentials: Tone, Structure, and Routines for Creating and Sustaining a Learning Community: This segment documents how and why the room is organized to support
            readers; the basic components of readers' workshop; how to get started with students who have few decoding skills; and the rules and procedures for whole-group sharing,
            conferences, and small-group work. Program 2: Explicit Teaching: Portraits from Readers' Workshop This segment presents explicit teaching in a variety of contexts,
            including word study, scaffolding individual readers in conferences, and using observations to assess students; whole- and small-group instruction in comprehension; and
            small-group guided practice in decoding. Program 3: Wise Choices: Independence and Instruction in Book Choice Informed student book choice is essential to a successful
            reading workshop. Students need a balanced reading diet of different types of text, and when we teach them how to make good choices it fosters independence and engages
            and motivates them to read for longer periods of time. Nonfiction is key, and teaching students how to access it broadens their choices and helps them become successful in a
            variety of texts with varying degrees of difficulty." Includes 2 disc in kit. (Happy Reading!)

Abstract:   Less than 200 years ago, thousands of African-American men, women and children were enslaved right here in the United States of America. One brave woman not only
            dared to escape, but also even risked her own life time and time again in order to free hundreds of others. In Harriet Tubman, kids will get an up-close look at the life of this
            famed conductor on the Underground Railroad while learning about the daily life of enslaved people and the dangers faced by those who fought to free them. (Harriet

Abstract:   What is heat energy, where does it come from and how does it relate to chemical energy? Heat & Chemical Energy teaches students that heat energy comes from the motion
            of chemical atoms, and chemical energy is stored in the bonds that link atoms together. Discover how chemical reactions can give off heat energy and how heat can help
            release the stored chemical energy in fuel. Learn how heat travels through engaging demonstrations that illustrate the methods of conduction, convection and radiation.
            Students investigate how scientists measure calories -- the energy stored in food -- by constructing a calorimeter and burning a peanut. (Heat & Chemical Energy)

Abstract:   More than 300 different Native American tribes had common beliefs, traditions and experiences, and in many ways, their history is a shared experience. This program
            examines the impact of European colonization on Native American tribes, including co-existence and trade, the struggles over land ownership and the effects of European
            imports like guns, horses, alcohol, religion and disease. It also covers the policies of the U.S. government, the forced removal of Indians in the Trail of Tears, the Indian
            Removal Act and the Indian boarding schools that diluted tribal cultures and shared beliefs. Today, all of the tribes face a similar, ongoing struggle to maintain their culture,
            language and traditions in the modern world. (History of Native Americans)

Abstract:   Human rights are considered by many to be the foundation of freedom, justice and peace. However, there is little international agreement on exactly what human rights are
            and even less on how to enforce them. This show explores the origin of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights and relates that despite this historic agreement,
            governments around the world not only discriminate against and often torture and imprison people without trial, but also do not respect their basic social and economic rights.
            Students will learn that while individual nations are ultimately responsible for protecting human rights, the United Nations and other organizations made up of ordinary
            individuals also play a strong role. (Human Rights)

Abstract:   The programs feature archival footage and documents, and includes interviews with noted historians, military authorities, engineers and war correspondents. One Year Later:
            Invasion from the devastating event of September 11, 2001 to President Bush's declaration against the "axis of evil," to U.N. negotiations, invasion, and the end of combat
            operations, this program explores what decisions were made, which worked, and why they were successful. One Year Later: Tough Going - The air war against Iraq
            progressed as planned until the capture of a number of U.S. combatants, including an Apache Longbow helicopter crew and Private Jessica Lynch, reshaped the expectations
            held by American at home. One Year Later: Baghdad's Doorstep - As the Third Infantry took the critical Karbala Gap and Baghdad Airport, Kurds and Special Forces moved
            toward Mosul and Kirkuk, and Allied planes flew two thousand sorties a day. Finally, the Third Infantry made its first foray into Baghdad. BONUS Program: The Extras:

Abstract:   The programs feature archival footage and documents, and includes interviews with noted historians, military authorities, engineers and war correspondents. One Year Later:
            Fall of Saddam - Marines helped pull down a statue of Saddam as Iraqi Army units melted away. Kurds and Coalition Special Forces captured Kirkuk and Mosul, and Task
            Force Tripoli took Tikrit more easily than expected. One Year Later: Aftermath - In May 2003, as President George Bush stood in front of a banner reading "Mission
            Accomplished," the lack of infrastructure caused chaos in Iraq, and mass looting ensued. Soldiers taught to fight were now being trained "on the job" as occupiers while more
            U.S. soldiers died in post-war operations than during the war. BONUS PROGRAMS: U.S. Weapons Against Iraq, a History Undercover episode from 2002 that details the
            many "smart" weapons planned for use in Iraq by coalition forces, during the long wait to war once Iraq's stalling tactics finally ran out (thanks, U.N.), and Iraq War:
            Insurgency and Counterinsurgency, a terrific examination from 2005 of the obstacles that met the unprepared coalition forces after the major assault was over, and the heroic
            efforts of the U.S. military to continue training the equally brave Iraqi police force to take control of their own country. (Iraq War: Volume 14)

            interpreters at Jamestown help answer his questions about the early days of the English colony and the struggles for food, water and shelter. Greg finds that many of the men
            who landed there in 1607 had to learn new skills to survive and that their search for gold and silver in the New World became a lucrative tobacco trade instead. He also visits
            a Powhatan Indian village and learns about their customs and way of life. Part of the Colonial Life for Children DVD Series. (Jamestown)

Abstract:   The programs feature archival footage and documents, and includes interviews with noted historians, military authorities, engineers and war correspondents. The Korean War:
            Making of a Bloodbath on June 25, 1950 North Korea surged across its southern border, catching South Korea and its allies off guard. U.S. and United Nations forces acted
            swiftly, but faced the likelihood of a humiliating evacuation. The Korean War: Triumph to Tragedy - With U.N. forces on the verge of defeat, Supreme Commander Douglas
            MacArthur masterminded a brilliant landing at Inchon. The onslaught of hundreds of thousands of Chinese troops forced the Americans to make a desperate retreat. The
            Korean War: Retreat from Hell - As American forces were nearly overrun, they engaged in the largest retreat in U.S. history. By December of 1950, the Communists
            recaptured Pyongyang. In January, Seoul fell as both sides dug in at the 38th Parallel. The Korean War: Bitter Standoff - American casualties mounted, as did the pressure to
            end the war. Truman replaced MacArthur with General Matthew Ridgeway, who retook Seoul. U.S. policy shifted from liberation to containment until the armistice of July
            1953. Technically, North and South Korea were still at war. (Korean War: Volume 10)

Abstract:   The great civilizations of Latin America were devastated after the arrival of the conquistadors and later the European colonizers, who created a society that was characterized
            by extreme differences between rich and poor - a legacy that continues to plague Latin America to a strong degree today. Although Latin American nations are no longer ruled
            by military dictatorships and have embraced democracy, social problems associated with the large income gap, such as poverty, landlessness and crime are pervasive. Latin

Abstract:   This award-winning instructional series, featuring Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic, introduces musical concepts and the works of the great composers in a
            music-with-commentary format. Viewers will explore the emotions and feelings that the composer expresses along with the sound he makes. Then, students will learn how an
            ordinary song becomes more when its three basic parts are expanded, as the composer moves between related musical keys.

Abstract:   How do the Imagineers make elephants fly? Actually, it's simple... simple machines, that is! Here, the Imagineers give a new look at how levers and pulleys were utilized to
            create attractions such as Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Soarin' Over California. Students will see how levers and pulleys make work easier by either multiplying or
            redirecting the effort we put into them. They will identify the two forces involved in using a machine and learn to calculate mechanical advantage, given effort and resistance.
            Each Imagineering DVD includes a bonus "try it yourself" experiment and an interactive activity to reinforce key learnings. (Levers & Pulleys)

Abstract:   Not that long ago, African Americans were denied basic rights and opportunities in the United States, but one man's work and dedication helped change the future of our
            country -- not just for African Americans, but for all Americans. In Martin Luther King, Jr., kids will take an in-depth look at the life of this civil rights leader and learn about
            his commitment to nonviolence in the pursuit of social change. From his days as a minister in Alabama to his role in the battle for equal rights, discover how Americans
            responded to the actions and words of the most influential leader of the Civil Rights Movement. Kids will also learn about the important milestones of the Civil Rights
            Movement -- from the historic decision of Brown vs. The Board of Education to the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the legendary March on Washington. (Martin Luther King,

Abstract:   In Mechanical Energy, students learn how energy can be transferred from one object to another to make something move -- like wind blowing on a sail. Discover that
            mechanical energy can exist in two states: moving, or kinetic energy, and stored, or potential energy. A roller coaster is just one vivid example of how mechanical energy is
            constantly changing form -- from potential to kinetic -- and back again. Kids also discover that sound is mechanical energy, a concept that is explained visually through a fun
            demonstration. Simple machines are introduced as ways to use mechanical energy to make work easier. An engaging experiment allows kids to put their own mechanical
            energy to work. (Mechanical Energy)

Abstract:   In Nuclear Energy, kids will discover the incredible power stored inside the tiny atom! The key concept is that huge amounts of energy can be released when the forces that
            hold the nucleus of an atom together are disturbed. That can happen through fission, the splitting of an atom's nucleus or fusion, the combining of protons and neutrons from
            two different atoms. Pioneering scientists Lise Meitner and Marie Curie are introduced, and students learn how their research led to a greater understanding of the atom. Kids
            also learn that although nuclear energy is a clean, almost inexhaustible energy resource, there are safety issues that must be addressed. Includes an exciting hands-on
            demonstration to help explain nuclear chain reactions and the energy they release. (Nuclear Energy)

Abstract:   Parenthood is a very tough, long-term commitment. That's the take-home message of this information-packed video and guide, as viewers follow a diverse group of young
            parents, and a pregnant teen, through their daily tasks. The video is broken down into four sections: emotional preparation, physical preparation, financial preparation and
            social preparation. Program emphasizes key teaching points including: parenthood requires maturity; a stable home environment; a reprioritizing of your life, time and money.
            The cost of a child, from food to diapers, medical care, child care, education and beyond, is very expensive and can strain budgets. Teens will learn that being a parent is a
            demanding job that needs careful consideration before it happens. (Parenthood: Are You Prepared?)

Abstract:   Plants play an important role in the survival of every living thing; in fact, they are responsible for our very existence! In Photosynthesis, find out what makes plants so unique
            by studying the chemical process of photosynthesis -- the amazing method of making food and oxygen from sunlight. Diagrams and microscopic photography illustrate the
            parts of a leaf's anatomy that are used during photosynthesis. See how chloroplasts filled with green chlorophyll become energized when exposed to light, and discover how
            this relates to the release of oxygen through stomata and the creation of sugars that can be stored. In a classic hands-on experiment, students will investigate whether a plant
            needs light to make food. This program is based on the concepts outlined in the National Science Education Standards for Life Science: structure & function in living systems,

Abstract:   What if you could build a machine that could make its own fuel, adapt to changing conditions and generate priceless products like air and water? Over millions of years,
            vascular plants have developed roots, stems and leaves that work together to perform these feats, as well as provide energy for every living thing on Earth! In Plant Structure
            and Growth, students will discover how plant cells are organized to form specialized tissues like xylem and phloem as they follow the movement of water, minerals and food
            through a plant's "plumbing system." Diagrams and microscopic photography illustrate how plant structures form systems that support plant growth. In a hands-on activity

Abstract:   This live-action program introduces viewers to polar and subpolar climates, and the people, plants and animals who live there. Using computer animation, the program
            explains how the angle of Earth's axis and Earth's rotation influence the Land of the Midnight Sun and the phenomena of the aurora borealis. In the Arctic and Antarctic
            regions, melting ice caps and icebergs are a natural hazard. The narrator explains that people in polar and subpolar regions are shown as dependent on their natural
            environments. Discover that the subpolar tundra and taiga provides vast conifer forests, and the Saami, or Laplanders, are dependent on reindeer herds, while in the Arctic, the
            Inuit follow seal herds. (Polar & Sub Polar Climates)

Abstract:   For years, many scientists classified all living things as animals, plants or fungi. Certain microorganisms, while displaying characteristics similar to a number of these groups,
            just didn't fit. Welcome to the Kingdom Protista! Neither animal, plant nor fungus, protists can be regarded as "leftovers." In fact, it's almost easier to discuss protists by what
            they are not than to accurately describe what they are. In Protists, students will delve into the question-filled world of these mysterious simple organisms. Learn the
            importance of the hard-shelled diatoms and the uses of the multicelled kelp, and meet the most complex single-celled organism of all -- the paramecium. In addition, a
            hands-on investigation will turn students into science sleuths as they observe the plant-like and animal-like characteristics of the protist, Euglena. One of four volumes in the

Abstract:   What happens when a determined young family gives up all oil-based products for a year? Filmmaker John Webster and his family decide to kick their addiction to oil. It's a
            quite simple really: the family will go on with their suburban lives, but without using any fossil fuels, driving cars or flying airplaines. They won't buy anything packaged in
            plastic like food, makeup, shampoo, toothpaste or kid's toys. Recipe for Disaster shows that at the core of the impending climate catastrophe are those little failures that we as
            individuals make every day, and which are so much as part of human nature. (Recipes for Disaster)

Abstract:   The Revolutionary War created many heroes, including the men who would go down in history as the Founding Fathers of a new country. Yet, there were many other men,
            women and children whose names you might not know, but whose acts of courage helped win the war against the British. Revolutionary War Heroes focuses on the daring
            acts of patriotism from people such as Nathan Hale, Sybil Ludington and Molly Pitcher, and the brave military feats of Colonel Francis Marion, Captain John Paul Jones and
            the Black Rhode Island Regiment. Kids will see how these ordinary citizens accomplished extraordinary things, rising to the challenge when they were needed to ensure
            independence for the fledgling nation. (Revolutionary War Heroes)

Abstract:   The programs feature archival footage and documents, and includes interviews with noted historians, military authorities, engineers and war correspondents. Volume 1: The
            American Revolution: The Conflict Ignites - Before the "shot heard around the world," better known as the Battle of Old North Bridge, the conflict that erupted into the
            American Revolutionary War began as a war of ideas. With the passionate support of activists like Patrick Henry and Samuel Adams, as well as statesmen like Benjamin
            Franklin, the economic credo "no taxation without representation" swiftly evolved into rallying cries of "Liberty or death!" and grand revolutionary themes such as "All men
            are created equal." The American Revolution: 1776 - The Virginian George Washington, selected by the Second Continental Congress to command the Continental Army,
            was the first of many brilliant military leaders to answer the call of Liberty. As Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain Boys, alongside others, took on the British at
            Ticonderoga and Quebec, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson shaped history in Philadelphia by drafting the Declaration of Independence. (Revolutionary

Abstract:   The programs feature archival footage and documents, and includes interviews with noted historians, military authorities, engineers and war correspondents. The American
            Revolution: Washington and Arnol - On Christmas night 1776, Washington led twenty-four hundred cold and weary warriors across the Delaware River. This masterful attack
            on Trenton turned the tide of the war, building momentum for General Horatio Gates' and Benedict Arnold's subsequent triumph at Saratoga. Across the Atlantic, Benjamin
            Franklin waged an equally important - and successful - campaign to convince the French Court to recognize his fledgling nation and declare war on beleaguered England. The
            American Revolution: The World at War - The war in the American colonies caused ripples around the world as France and Spain saw an opportunity to capitalize on the
            economic and military pressure bearing down on their traditional enemy, Great Britain. At Valley Forge, Washington's men were trained under Prussian military instructors,
            preparing them for the inspiring Battle of Monmouth. Meanwhile, frontiersmen George Rogers Clark and Daniel Boone waged a merciless insurgent campaign on America's
            Western Frontier. (Revolutionary War: Volume 2)

Abstract:   The programs feature archival footage and documents, and includes interviews with noted historians, military authorities, engineers and war correspondents. The American
            Revolution: England's Last Chance - As the war lurched into its fifth bloody year, Benedict Arnold made a deal with the British to hand over the "key to the continent" - West
            Point. At sea, American privateers crippled British commerce, while France and Spain waged a naval war on Britain in the West Indies. Brutal leaders like Banastre "The
            Butcher" Tarleton helped the British dominate the South, until Nathaniel Greene forced Commander Cornwallis to retreat to Virginia. The American Revolution: Birth of the
            Republic - At the Battle of Cowpens, General Daniel Morgan destroyed the bulk of Tarleton's legion, allowing Nathaniel Greene to drive Cornwallis all the way back to
            Virginia. Seizing opportunity, Washington leveraged French naval power to a decisive victory at Yorktown. The war officially ended with the Peace of Paris, which secured
            American independence. The Constitutional Convention drafted the historic document that united the victorious colonies as "We, the People of the United States."

Abstract:   Discover the story of Roger Williams, the rebellious Puritan minister who was banished from the Massachusetts Bay Colony and went on to establish the colony of Rhode
            Island in 1636 with Providence as its capital. Williams sought to create a community in which people were free to follow their own beliefs, to disagree and to share ideas.
            Other colonists seeking greater religious freedom soon joined Williams in what became known as the "Lively Experiment." This program looks at the influence of the
            Narragansett Indians in the region and the Puritan traditions observed by the settlers. Part of the Colonial Life for Children DVD Series. (Roger Williams & Rhode Island)

Abstract:   When it comes to formulating a sentence, the words you choose, the order in which they are used and the agreement that they have are all important. Join our hosts for a series
            of short, instructional clips that pinpoint common questions about sentence structure, such as how to ensure that a sentence has subject-verb agreement, how to shift a sentence
            from the passive voice to the active voice and how to revise a sentence so that it has parallel structure. Expressing clear sentences is a necessary component of Standard
            English grammar, and these clips target related topics that will familiarize students with important sentence elements and help them view their choice of words, and the order
            in which they use them, in a critical way. (Sentence Structure)

Abstract:   Rich in the history of the early settlers, this intriguing program highlights key aspects of colonial settlement in the New World. Young viewers will learn about the motivations
            behind early European exploration and settlement by the English, Spanish, French and Dutch. Some came for riches, some for land and others for religious freedom. They
            found a land very different from their own, inhabited by Native Americans with whom they developed relationships -- sometimes peaceful, often not. The program presents a
            brief portrait of daily life in the settlements while describing the important contributions each group brought to the development of the new American society. Part of the

            shorthand known as Exponents. Signed Numbers - Bill's idea of taking us "Over The Rainbow" is actually a journey through the Barrier of Zero, where we'll behold the

Abstract:   With help from computer animation, this live-action program explains how cumulonimbus clouds develop into thunderstorms and how cyclones or hurricanes form over
            tropical oceans. Illustrates terms such as updraft, cyclone, funnel cloud and wind spout, indicating that the force of its winds determines the severity of a storm. In comparison
            with tropical cyclones, viewers learn that tornadoes occur over landmasses and cover a much smaller area than cyclones or hurricanes. The program closes with a sequence
            that explains how fragile-looking houses are constructed to withstand tropical cyclones. (Storms, Cyclones & Hurricanes)

Abstract:   Did you know that not too long ago, many Americans didn't have the right to vote? If you were a woman living in the United States before the early 1900s, it would have been
            illegal for you to cast a ballot -- and doing so could have landed you in jail! One great American fought long and hard for the right for all of us to vote, and in Susan B.
            Anthony, kids will get an up-close look at the life of this pioneering voice in the struggle for equal rights. From abolitionist to suffragist, follow Anthony's life through vivid
            reenactments and historical stills, and see how her lifelong dedication to the fight for equality changed the lives of women in America forever. (Susan B. Anthony)

Abstract:   Live-action film footage, maps and computer animation introduce the climate of temperate regions in Europe and inland, as well as continental areas of Europe and North
            America. Students learn that temperate climates are ideal for agriculture, wildlife and the growth of cities since there is relatively little variation in temperature from summer
            to winter. The air is always moist from proximity to the ocean. In contrast, continental climates are shown as far colder in winter with storms that develop in summer due to
            daytime heating. Nevertheless, people and wildlife also thrive in this interior climate. (Temperate & Continental Climates)

Abstract:   While the Internet is a place of promise and progress, it is also a place of peril for young teens. Chat rooms, e-mail, sites such as MySpace, and instant messaging allow teens
            to keep in touch with friends, but also offer the potential for youngsters to be abused in ways they have not considered. Using real teens in a peer-to-peer format, this video
            helps teens navigate problems and learn important rules and strategies to keep them safe while surfing the net. Program explores online bullying and rumor spreading, identity
            theft, blogging and the real threat of sexual predators. Viewers learn to "think before you click" in order to avoid embarrassing yourself or hurting others, while keeping
            yourself and others safe. Your students will conclude that while the Internet is a fun, exciting place, it is always important to be smart about what you say and whom you
            befriend online.(Think Before You Click: Playing It Safe Online)

Abstract:   He lived during a time of great conflict and war -- but he is most famous for fighting battles with a pen rather than a sword. In Thomas Jefferson, kids will examine the life of
            the statesman who wrote one of the world's greatest documents -- the Declaration of Independence -- and, in turn, helped form the very country we live in today. From his
            days in colonial Virginia to his election as president of the United States, kids will discover Jefferson's many contributions to American society, including the development of
            the Library of Congress, the capital of our nation, Washington D.C., and the great western expanse of North America that he felt compelled to explore. (Thomas Jefferson)

Abstract:   In The Transfer of Energy, aspiring scientist Sylvie uncovers some compelling examples of how energy is never lost -- it just changes form as it moves through the universe.
            Discover that without energy transfers, there could be no life on Earth! Colorful, fast-paced visuals help students learn that heat energy from the sun is transferred to Earth's
            surface and among objects in three different ways: conduction, convection and radiation. Find out that the sun's energy is also continually being transferred into different
            forms that we depend on to live and grow. A fun experiment with golf balls and ping-pong balls allows kids to see an energy transfer in action. James Watt's steam engine is
            an excellent historical example of how heat energy can be harnessed to do work as it changes form. (Transfer of Energy)

Abstract:   Now one year later, the students have completed their freshman year of college. In Two Million Minutes Chapter 3, we bring together the two American students and the two
            Chinese students for a candid, compelling roundtable discussion. How well did high school prepare them? Do they wish they had done things differently? How do they see
            their peers in other countries now? What has their first year of college been like? How different is the college experience between these two countries? Interview with Dr. Lin,
            Headmaster, Xiwai International School - With a mission to "cultivate within each of its students a balance of Chinese wisdom and a global perspective", Xiwai International
            School is pioneering a new path in Chinese education - a public-private joint venture in education between Xiwai Investment Co. and Shanghai International Studies
            University . The former is a company specializing in education investment; it consists of shareholders and senior managers, including individuals from the international
            banking sector, such as Goldman Sachs, and from Chinese and overseas educational institutions. Shanghai International Studies University is one of China 's key universities,
            directly under the jurisdiction of the Chinese Ministry of Education. How is traditional Chinese K-12 education changing? What are the strengths of the historical approach?
            What are you trying to achieve with new approaches? How much freedom do high school principals and teachers have? How do you balance teaching Communist philosophy
            with capitalist economics? China seems to have a very active "Gifted and Talented" programs. What can Chinese educators learn from America? What can American
            educators learn from China. (Two Minutes in China, Chapter 3: A deeper look at Chinese Education)

Abstract:   How a student spends their Two Million Minutes - in class, at home studying, playing sports, working, sleeping, socializing or just goofing off -- will affect their economic
            prospects for the rest of their lives. How do most American high school students spend this time? What about students in the rest of the world? How do family, friends and
            society influence a student's choices for time allocation? What implications do their choices have on their future and on a country's economic future? This film takes a deeper
            look at how the three superpowers of the 21st Century - China, India and the United States - are preparing their students for the future. As we follow two students - a boy and
            a girl - from each of these countries, we compose a global snapshot of education, from the viewpoint of kids preparing for their future. Our goal is to tell the broader story of
            the universal importance of education today, and address what many are calling a crisis for U.S. schools regarding chronically low scores in math and science indicators.

Abstract:   When Erik the Red first arrived in Greenland, the fertile green land was perfect for farming. But within a few centuries the thriving Viking settlements had been wiped out by
            global cooling. The Little Ice Age is one of many climactic eras that have been scientifically identified. Since about 1850 the earth has been in a warming period. What is the
            role of carbon dioxide in warming? The best available records of temperature and atmospheric CO2 over the past 650,000 years indicate that the earth's temperature always
            rises first, followed by a rise in carbon dioxide. If a warmer earth leads to increased levels of CO2-and not the other way around can humans use of fossil fuels be the cause of
            global warming? Shouldn't this critical question remain open to scientific inquiry? (Unstoppable Solar Cycles)

Abstract:   It's a pretty safe bet that nearly everyone has had at least one up-close and nasty experience with viruses like those that cause the common cold. But what exactly is a virus and
            how do these microscopic parasites infect their human hosts? In Viruses, students will examine the characteristics of these simple organisms. Discover how viruses remain
            dormant until they are able to latch onto a host cell, in the microscopic equivalent of a space shuttle docking! Also explored are the viruses known as bacteriophages, which
            scientists believe may hold the key to conquering bacteria. Learn why, when it comes to viruses, prevention is possible in the form of a vaccine. In addition, a hands-on
            demonstration illustrates how viruses are able to spread through a population via casual contact. One of four volumes in the Simple Organisms in Action DVD Series in the
            Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library in Action Collection. This title correlates to the National Science Education Standards for Life

Abstract:   This program investigates the causes of global winds, including the rotation of the Earth on its axis, its orbit around the sun and the uneven heating of the Earth's surface.
            Explains how anticyclones and depressions develop, spurred on by the coriolis force. Indicates the origin of west winds, the trade winds and equatorial winds such as the
            simoom, mistral and sirocco. The section on weather forecasting explains how wind currents produce storm systems that are also affected by the movement of the upper level
            jet stream. Stresses the importance of accurate weather observations that have been possible since the invention of weather instruments, as well as the advent of satellite
            photography and computer modeling. (Winds & Weather Forecasting)

Abstract:   The programs feature archival footage and documents, and includes interviews with noted historians, military authorities, engineers and war correspondents. The Death of
            Glory, Parts 1 & 2 - Beginning with a double murder in Sarajevo, the "War to End All Wars" set the stage for even deadlier conflicts. Battlefield chivalry and honor yielded
            to the impersonal U-boat and poison gas, the devastating firepower of tanks and machine guns, and trench warfare. Nations disappeared from the map of Europe as the seeds
            were planted for the rebirth, merely twenty-one years later, of a new and deadlier German juggernaut. The Last Day of World War I - On November 11, 1918, known as
            Armistice Day, the "Great War" was declared over and Allied victory seemed assured. Yet thousands of men would die that day. Allied leaders, seeking promotion or
            vengeance, manufactured outrageous excuses to send troops against a defeated enemy. The territories won would be returned to Germany, while the soldiers were sacrificed
            for vanity. (World War I: Volume 7)

            World War II - Defeat after defeat sent Hitler's plans for global domination spinning inexorably out of control, and Nazi leaders scrambled to protect their treasures and
            secrets at all costs. Meanwhile, the advancing Allied forces discovered the unimaginable depth of Nazi depravity as they liberated the infamous extermination camps hidden
            in plain sight throughout eastern Europe. A string of strategic, political, and diplomatic blunders sealed the fate of the Third Reich as Berlin fell in flames and Hitler died in
            his bunker along with his wife and his dog. The Allies exerted a final successful push in the Pacific Theater. And on September 9, 1945, the deadliest war in human history
            formally came to an end. Finally, the world demanded justice at the unprecedented Nuremberg trials, as a new type of conflict loomed on the horizon - The Cold War. (World

            Accident or Target? In April 1945 as the Allies closed in on Berlin, the USS Eagle 56, a World War I-era ship towing targets for torpedo bombers off the coast of Maine
            suddenly exploded, killing forty-nine officers. Survivors reported seeing suspicious naval activity around the ship, but the U.S. Government insisted it was an accident. Now,
            sixty years later, the government has confirmed that the USS Eagle 56 was sunk by a German submarine in U.S. waters as the Reich's final act of aggression. Last Secrets of
            the Axis - Behind the most notorious men of the Nazi regime stood the little-known geography professor Karl Haushofer, who coined the term "geopolitics," and whose
            obsession with Japan's cults and secret societies may have shaped Hitler's vision of global Aryan domination. Other Axis secrets included German and Italian support of a
            coup in Iraq that had the goal of establishing a Persian Gulf base for Japanese submarines. (World War II: Volume 9)

Abstract:   Looking to win the affection of a Plimoth Plantation enactor, a man takes a job enacting as her husband, and in the process learns that much of what we learned in school
            about the Pilgrims is not necessarily so. For example, did you know that the Pilgrims wore colorful clothing, and that many came to American soil in search of profit, not
            religious freedom? The enactor also learns that while the Plimoth Colony originally followed practices of property sharing, it became evident quickly that this system had
            major flaws. By 1623, the Pilgrims decided that private property ownership allowed for a much more efficient and productive workforce, yielding plentiful crop harvests. This
            laid the foundation for today's practices of private property rights, affecting many of our possessions such as i-Pods and cell phones. (Yours and Mine: The Lesson of 1623)
