If you're like me, you've gone to conferences and workshops. You've bought books about differentiation. You've already heard lots of ideas. But you still haven't really implemented many of those ideas.
Why? Because workshops, conferences, and books all have the same problem: they leave you with more work! Despite the time and money invested, you still have to actually write the lessons.
But here's the thing.
You're good at working with students, building relationships, creating a great environment, and actually teaching. That's probably why you became a teacher. That's what you should be able to focus on!
That's where Byrdseed.TV comes in.
Byrdseed.TV is a library of video lessons, projects, and investigations that you can use directly with your gifted students.
"Directly" is the key. It means I've already done the work of, not just designing the lessons, but also putting them into a format you can use with your students. You don't have to spend time interpreting and implementing my lesson plans. You don't even need to read a lesson plan! It's all done for you. You can just, you know, teach.
At Byrdseed.TV, I design the lessons from the ground up for your most capable students. I build them using best-practices – not the latest fad, app, or acronym. These lessons leave enough space for students to really think – not merely remember. These are lessons designed especially for advanced students, not ideas bolted on after the fact.
I want your students to utter those magical words: can I keep working on this?
I know that some folks work in self-contained classrooms, some are pull-out teachers, some push-in, some offer only enrichment, some even work remotely. Byrdseed.TV is purposefully flexible to meet your needs. However, Byrdseed.TV is best suited for those who teach multiple subjects and work with students in grades 3 through 6.
Thousands of teachers from around the world use Byrdseed.TV with their students. They represent every continent (except Antarctica). They say they love Byrdseed.TV but, more importantly, their students enjoy the lessons.

Jeannette in California
"The ideas presented are clear and straight-forward and my students have responded positively to every lesson idea I’ve used. It’s my favorite go-to resource."
Melissa in North Carolina
"I love Byrdseed TV! I use it as a resource and inspiration source! Thank you so much for sharing your ideas and knowledge."
Kari in Texas
"I absolutely LOVE all of the ideas on your site. I am using Byrdseed TV to differentiate activities for my clustered students to work on when the rest of the class is doing something they’ve already mastered."
Wendy in Washington
"Love, love, love Byrdseed TV... I used many ideas and lessons this year. The kids loved the lessons and were engaged!"
Tiffany in California
"I just subscribed to Byrdseed.TV and am loving it -- though it is kind of scary addictive in a binge-watching kind of way (that, by the way, is a compliment)."
Elizabeth from Florida
The best feedback I've ever received was from a student who said that, while everything else at school is so linear, "Byrdseed.TV makes us think diagonally!" Yes!
When I attend a national education conference, after my flight, hotel, meals, and registration, I end up spending about $1000. For three days.
I'd walk away with a handful of good ideas, but I also need a week or so to unpack those ideas and create actual lessons.
Byrdseed.TV is not $1000 for three days. It's just $119 for a year. You'll get more than a handful of ideas. You'll get 300 lessons, ready to go. You won't need a week to unpack them. You can just, you know, teach.
Hello! I'm Ian Byrd, and I create the resources here at Byrdseed.TV. Tens of thousands of teachers read my site Byrdseed.com every month, I've spoken at dozens of state conferences, I taught gifted students in southern California, and I even grew up in a gifted program myself.
