12:00 AM 
Science In Focus: Force and Motion  "Keep On Rolling"  Roller coasters are filled with twists and turns, as changes in height and direction supply a variety of push and pull forces. In this workshop, first-grade students build on their prior experience with rolling objects. By designing and constructing their own roller coaster made from ramps, cardboard tubes, and flexible tubes, the students experiment with ways to get a marble from the top of a table into a bucket on the floor, some distance away. [G]

1:00 AM 
Death: A Personal Understanding  "Death Rituals"  To what degree do individual circumstances require spontaneous adaptation of traditional rites? A minister who lost her brother in the Lockerbie air disaster, and a father whose failing marriage affected his role in his young son's funeral, discuss their need to adapt traditional rituals to their own circumstances. A cancer patient planning her service in advance and a veteran at a Vietnam memorial provide a comparison of private and public rituals. [P]

1:30 AM 
Death: A Personal Understanding  "Good Death"  Should we help people die, or force them to live? What constitutes a good death? Perspectives from native North American culture and urban medical ethicists provide background as we meet a woman facing death from breast cancer and a young family with a terminally ill infant. The special grief long-term caregivers can fall into is also discussed as we discover the ways that the dying can help to heal the living. [P]

2:00 AM 
Teaching Channel Presents  "Common Core Prek - 12"  We'll start with Pre-K math students and finish up with high school English students as we explore the many ways Common Core is being integrated into classrooms-in both math and ELA the emphasis is teaching students how to think. [P]

3:00 AM 
Making Meaning In Literature: A Workshop for Teachers, Grades 6-8  "Workshop 9. Starting In September...."  The concluding program takes a close look at the ways in which teachers get ready to help their students become successful and engaged readers. During the first few days of classes, the teachers talk about everything — from the mundane to the sublime — that enters their minds as they start another year and plan for success. [P]

4:00 AM 
Science Trek  "Muscles"  Host Joan Cartan-Hansen and her guest will answer students' questions about muscles and the muscular system. Her guest is Dr. Tony Joseph, a family practitioner also certificated in Sports Medicine at the Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello. [G]

4:30 AM 
Travel with Kids  "Venice, Italy: Not Just for Romance"  Most people think of Venice as a romantic destination, but it's great for kids too! There are no cars to worry about and a feast for the senses lingers over every bridge. Where else in the world are the streets made of water lined by ancient buildings adorned in wild designs, statues and gold? No, this isn't Disneyland, although it may seem like it to children. [P]

5:00 AM 
Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen  "By The Sea"  Seafood may come from the water, but nothing brings out its briny succulence like the high, dry, smoky heat of the grill. This truth is readily apparent on the beaches of Brazil, at the waterfront grill stalls in Asia, and the seaside communities of the Yucatan. [P]

5:30 AM 
Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen  "Make No Mis-Steak"  This show reveals the secrets of how to grill the perfect steak, from selecting and setting up the grill to seasoning and sauces. [G]

6:30 AM 
Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen  "On The Vine"  Beer may be the beverage served at a lot of American cook-outs, but much of the world's barbecue trail runs directly through regions famed for their wine. This show will focus on the important role vines and wines play in barbecue-the former as a wrapping and fuel; the latter as an ingredient in marinades and sauces. [P]

7:00 AM 
Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen  "Fish Without Fear"  Steve fixes cedar-planked sockeye salmon with a delicate miso glaze, served with fresh fennel and orange slaw. He also serves up prosciutto-wrapped whole fresh brook trout and Trinidadian grilled swordfish. [G]

7:30 AM 
Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen  "Asia's Crossroads"  Some of the world's biggest flavors come hot off some of the world's smallest grills. Proof positive? Sizzling beef sates-cut from well-marbled rib eye steaks and masterfully spiced with cumin, coriander, and turmeric from tiny Singapore. [P]

8:00 AM 
Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen  "On The Bone"  Steven centers each episode around a place - "In the Wild," "From the Farm," or "At the Game." New recipes range from a whole spit-roasted hog to a Columbian method of wrapping beef tenderloin in salt and cloth to be grilled in the embers. [G]

8:30 AM 
Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen  "Shell Games"  Steve grills tequila-marinated oysters, ginger-mint buttered lobster and an unusual shrimp cocktail. [G]
