The PBS Learning Media Middle School Collection features 40 self-paced lessons for grades 5 - 8 in the core subjects. Some of the topics include: energy, plate tectonics, nutrition, and Newton's law; civil rights, building the Erie Canal, and the Trail of Tears; language arts topics such as symbolism and personification; and math topics such as ratios and proportions, multiplying fractions, and graphing distance and time.

The slideshow lessons incorporate video and interactive activities. Learners take notes, answer questions (multiple choice, matching, drag and drop), learn new vocabulary, and complete writing assignments.

Each lesson also includes a teaching guide with an overview of the lesson, and a summary of what's on each slide.
