Would you like to travel to Washington, D.C. for a fully funded professional development conference and learn about civics education?
Then you should apply today to attend one of C-SPAN’s 2019 Summer Educator Conferences.
What Are C-SPAN’s Summer Educator Conferences?
Each year, C-SPAN hosts two Summer Educator Conferences at their office in Washington, D.C.
Each conference lasts two days, and attendees will be exposed to the extensive free resources provided by C-SPAN for classroom teachers. You’ll meet the staff behind C-SPAN classroom along with some of the staff responsible for producing C-SPAN’s video content and video library.
Another highlight of the conference is the dinner on the first night of the conference. Conference attendees attend a fancy dinner at one of city’s hotels, and they are joined by a special guest who will speak on a topic related to civics and education. Past guests include Richard Baker, Senate Historian, and Steve Scully, one of C-SPAN’s political correspondents.
This is also a great way to explore C-SPAN’s offerings and prepare to apply for C-SPAN’s Teacher Fellowship – which is an even greater summer professional development opportunity.
Best of all, the conference is fully funded. They will pay for your travel and lodging
