Minnesota Video Vault

Twin Cities Public Television (TPT) has released the Minnesota Video Vault (online at http://www.mnvideovault.org/). The vault provides access to hundreds of videos and TPT productions, from short clips to lengthy shows.

The "Educators" button allows you to sort by very broad K12 areas (e.g., Social Science, Science, or Language Arts), then focus by "grade level," then "strand" (e.g., Minnesota History or US History), and then by "sub strand" (e.g., under the Minnesota History "strand" you can select "sub strands" like the "Civil War and Dakota War" or "Contact and Fur Trade"). The "Interest Areas" button provides a more immediate breakdown by history, people, places, MN issues, arts & entertainment, and special collections, with further topical subdivisions beneath that.
