About the Fellowship
Each year C-SPAN invites teachers of social studies, as well as media/ technology educators in grades 6-12, who are highly familiar with C-SPAN’s programs and demonstrate successful innovative methods of integrating C-SPAN’s programming and resources into their teaching practices, to apply for an opportunity to participate in its 2013 Teacher Fellowship Program, a project of the C-SPAN Education Foundation. This Fellowship is open to certified teachers in public or private schools who are members of C-SPAN Classroom, a free membership service that is dedicated to supporting educators’ use of C-SPAN programming in their classrooms.
For four weeks during the summer, Fellowship recipients will collaborate with C-SPAN’s Education department to develop new teaching materials using C-SPAN resources in order to better serve our Classroom members nationwide. This program takes place at C-SPAN’s offices in Washington, DC. Each fellow receives an award valued at $7,000 which includes housing and travel expenses. Fellows may also participate in C-SPAN’s Summer Educators’ Conference where they share their ideas with education colleagues about creating innovative learning experiences using C-SPAN’s programs and websites.
C-SPAN's 2013 Summer Educators' Conference
Each year, C-SPAN hosts a Summer Educators’ Conference in Washington, DC. The day and a half conference is typically held during the month of July at C-SPAN’s headquarters in the heart of Washington, DC. Airfare to and from Washington, two nights’ hotel stay, and meals during the conference are all provided by C-SPAN.
C-SPAN will host two Summer Educators' Conferences in 2013:
- Monday, July 8 - Tuesday, July 9
- Thursday, July 11 - Friday, July 12
**Applications for the 2013 Summer Educators' Conference are now closed**
At this conference middle and high school educators (grades 6-12) gather from around the country to learn more about C-SPAN and how to effectively integrate C-SPAN’s online resources into their classrooms.
Conference participants learn:
- About C-SPAN’s mission, programming, and event coverage
- How to navigate C-SPAN’s online resources (c-span.org, C-SPAN’s Video Library, Congressional Chronicle, and the C-SPAN Classroom website)
- About our StudentCam and Teacher Fellowship enrichment opportunities that are available to students and educators
- How colleagues nationwide have effectively incorporated C-SPAN’s programming and resources into their curriculums to develop creative learning experiences for students
