Seadrift teacher heads to Washington for C-SPAN’s 2019 Educators’ Conference

Seadrift School teacher, Maggie Franck, will attend one of two C-SPAN Educators’ Conferences for an immersive experience with C-SPAN’s educational resources.

Franck, a social studies teacher, is one of 32 educators from across the nation selected to attend the middle school conference July 22-23.

The conference provides educators with the opportunity to explore C-SPAN Classroom’s free teaching resources, hear from guest speakers and learn how to search, clip and share videos from over 250,000 hours in C-SPAN’s Video Library.

C-SPAN Classroom offers a variety of content on different topics, including public affairs, the branches of government, history and literature featured in short Current Events videos, Lesson Plans and Bell Ringers, On This Day in History events, Constitution Clips and Classroom Deliberations.

Attendees discover how to incorporate these resources into their curriculums and create engaged learning experiences for students.

Participants were selected by a panel of C-SPAN representatives and evaluated based on their commitment to learning new educational resources, applying them in the classroom environment and sharing their professional development experiences in their academic communities.

C-SPAN provides roundtrip airfare, hotel accommodations and meals for the two days.

“This conference provides a hands-on experience for teachers to discover new tools to take back to the classroom, and we’re excited to see the innovative ways teachers will implement these resources,” said Craig McAndrew, C-SPAN Manager of Education Relations. “For over 20 years, C-SPAN has hosted Educators’ Conferences, and we look forward to meeting and working with this year’s participants.”

Conference attendees will hear from Founder and Executive Chairman Brian Lamb about the public affairs network.

In addition, Steve Scully, C-SPAN Political Editor, will be the guest speaker at the conference dinner.

The Educators’ Conferences are sponsored by C-SPAN’s Education Foundation, a charitable organization created by C-SPAN.

C-SPAN Classroom is an entity of C-SPAN, which is funded by America’s cable and satellite television companies. In Seadrift, C-SPAN is available locally through Spectrum.
