What is Bear Essentials?

Students often struggle with Math. At times, the same struggle exists in Science or other subjects. Bear Essentials was designed to help the student master skills in their subjects. The site seeks out existing classroom instruction, usually in video form. Teachers share their classroom instruction in video. Bear Essentials has located those video teaching sessions and has organized them into subjects. The result is a collection of video-based instruction in the major topics in Math, Science, English and Social Studies.

How to Use Bear Essentials:

To the right is a menu of the subjects available at this time. You will also find useful topics in other areas as well. A warning should be shared! Many of the videos are very interesting and in some cases, the videos are humorous as well. Try it.

When selecting a subject, click on the course and then browse to find the topic of interest. You may not see the exact topic title as in your assignment, but browse and select a topic similar to your topic.

You will see an Educational Games menu item. These games require the student to answer questions to advance in the game. More games will be added in the future.


If you see areas where more video material would be helpful, please share your thoughts with Terri Keeton, tkeeton@wsisd.net.
