Stossel In The Classroom: Free DVD

Age Range: 11-18 (about middle school/high school with parental supervision)

“Stossel in the Classroom.” Sponsored by the Center for Independent Thought (a non-profit educational foundation) offers a free DVD each school year that is a compilation of John Stossel’s television programs and specials designed for use in the classroom to enhance the study of social sciences.  All you have to do is register (free), and agree to provide feedback once you’ve viewed the DVD – and the DVD will be mailed to your home or school address. There are also free, downloadable “Teacher Guides” for the DVDs at the website with lesson plans, activity suggestions, handouts, and vocabulary.

A new DVD is produced each year and is free to teachers including home educators. Right now you can get TWO FREE DVDs: the 2013 edition, and the 2012 edition (while supplies last)! When you get to the site, you’ll see John Stossel’s smiling face and learn how to register to receive the DVDs.

When you’re through registering, use the menu at the top of the page to access all of the free resources available. Watch free “Streaming Videos” from Stossel on thought-provoking topics. Past videos are archived at the site. You can also search the videos by subject including:

You can use John Stossel’s thought-provoking programs to launch lively discussions, question conventional wisdom, gather and analyze information, and distinguish between fact and opinion.

When you register at the site, you will automatically receive the quarterly e-newsletter with convenient links to order the latest free DVD, play the free monthly streaming video clips, and access the featured teacher resources.
