To help students avoid the summer slide, VPM has partnered with educators and non-profit organizations to create content that will keep students in grades 4-10 engaged in learning and inspired to discover more. Each show has been created and filmed by educators from their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic. In certain shows, educators also introduce professionally produced segments that reinforce the concepts being taught in an episode. The goal of VPM Classroom content is to educate, entertain and inspire.
VPM Classroom airs each weekday starting at 1:00 p.m. on VPM Plus from July 6 - August 14, 2020. Tune in to watch or stream here anytime. New episodes are uploaded weekly.
VPM Classroom explores the following content areas and is correlated with Virginia Standards of Learning (SOLs).
