WASHINGTON, DC -

This is a news release from C-SPAN

Cathy Lee, a social studies teacher at Petal Middle School, is one of 30 educators from across the nation selected to attend C-SPAN Classroom’s 2016 Educators’ Conference in Washington, DC, July 11-12, 2016.  

The conference provides educators with the opportunity to explore C-SPAN’s programs and C-SPAN Classroom’s free primary source materials. Attendees discover how to incorporate these resources into their curriculums and create engaged learning experiences for students.

Lee competed with middle school teachers from across the country to secure a place at the conference. C-SPAN provides roundtrip airfare, hotel accommodations and meals for the two days.

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

“The educators' conference provides an opportunity for teachers to discover creative strategies to integrate C-SPAN programming into classroom activities,” said Craig McAndrew, C-SPAN Manager of Education Relations. “Our goal is to connect students with public affairs content that cultivates a better understanding of how our federal government works."

Conference attendees will hear from C-SPAN staff and leadership, including Founder and Executive Chairman Brian Lamb, to learn more about the public affairs network. In addition, C-SPAN Political Editor Steve Scully will speak about Campaign 2016 during the conference dinner.
