The web page is located within Teachers'Domain, an online educational resource produced by WGBH Boston. It has two related components ? collections and courses ? that help teachers enhance their students' learning experiences and advance their own teaching skills. The Teachers' Domain collections include classroom-ready multimedia resources for use in lessons or independent study. Registration is free for everyone (teachers, students, parents).
