Creekland Middle Teach Attends C-SPAN Conference

From C-SPAN

Angela Sprague, a social studies teacher at Creekland Middle School, is one of 32 educators from across the nation selected to attend C-SPAN Classroom’s 2014 Educators’ Conference to be held in Washington, DC, Monday, July 7, and Tuesday, July 8, 2014.  

The conference helps educators discover how to integrate C-SPAN’s programs and C-SPAN Classroom’s free web-based primary source materials into classroom activities to create engaging learning experiences for students. The conference brings together middle school teachers who specialize in social studies and/or technology. Sprague competed with applicants from across the country to secure a place at the conference. C-SPAN provides the roundtrip airfare, hotel accommodations and meals for all selected attendees. 

“Over the course of the two-day conference, we endeavor to equip teachers with a variety of strategies to incorporate C-SPAN’s primary source programs into their classrooms,” said Craig McAndrew, C-SPAN Manager of Education Relations. “Our free resources are geared toward aiding teachers in providing a clear understanding of how the federal government works, the history of the U.S. and the issues affecting our country.” 

Throughout the event participants will learn more about C-SPAN, its online archive of primary source programs as well as a host of other FREE digital resources that can be implemented in the classroom. Bob Cusack, Managing Editor, The Hill, will speak at the conference dinner.
