Children throughout New Jersey will be able to tune into NJTV, New Jersey’s public television network, for NJTV Learning Live, a program featuring lessons taught by New Jersey teachers. The initiative, designed to advance learning during the statewide school closures caused by the COVID19 pandemic, was created through a partnership between NJTV, the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) and the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE).
Each weekday, NJTV Learning Live will offer four programs for grades 3 to 6. Third-grade instruction begins at 9 a.m.; fourth-grade programming is at 10 a.m.; fifth grade is 11 a.m.; and sixth-grade instruction begins at noon. Subjects will include English language arts, math, science, social studies, and a “special” such as art, music or physical education.
NJTV Learning Live is scheduled to run until May and can continue into mid-June if needed.
The on-air classroom lessons will be livestreamed and archived on the network’s website, NJTVonline.org.
