Welcome Back for News
Quiz's 30th Season!

This summer, we said good-bye to our long-time News Quiz producer, who retired from KET after many years of service. For the first three weeks of our 30th season, as we adjust to this new reality, KET will be airing special editions of News Quiz featuring evergreen stories from the last three years.

Then, starting September 25, KET will begin airing new episodes that feature a fresh take on the quality content that News Quiz offers Kentucky schools. After airing, each episode is available at the News Quiz website.

As always, thanks for using News Quiz in your classroom! For 30 years, it's been our privilege to be a trusted current events source for Kentucky teachers and students.

Health Three60
Focuses on Sleep

On the next Health Three60, Renee Shaw and guests examine the risks of insufficient sleep on health and learning, explain the important differences between chronic sleep deprivation and insomnia, and highlight the need for policies that support better sleep. Watch "Sleepless in Kentucky" online now.

Engage your students with this comprehensive collection on PBS LearningMedia. Math at the Core: Middle School features over 400 math resources that appeal to a variety of students.

Each resource is aligned with one or more of the Math Common Core State Standards, and all middle school math standards are covered.

The collection features 50 resources produced by KET, including 17 updated videos and interactives about proportional reasoning, 14 new animations and games about fraction multiplication and division, and 12 new riddle-based interactives about number lines and Cartesian graphs.

Get to Know Noh

Introduce your students to an intriguing form of traditional Japanese drama with these five KET-produced videos on PBS LearningMedia.

Traditionally an all-day performance, Noh theater features a play from each of five categories: God, Warrior, Woman, Deranged, and Demon. Each category has a specific mask and costume.

Five videos explore Noh theater history, mask making, Noh music, a student performance, and incorporating Noh into the classroom.
