RYE, N.Y. – Stephanie Zanotta, a social studies teacher at Rye Middle School, is one of 30 educators from across the nation selected to attend C-SPAN Classroom’s 2015 Educators’ Conference to be held in Washington, D.C., Thursday, July 9, and Friday, July 10.

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. Zanotta competed with applicants from across the country to secure a place at the conference.

“Over the course of the two-day conference, we aim 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 issues affecting our country and the history of the U.S.”

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.

C-SPAN Political Editor Steve Scully will speak at the conference dinner about the 2016 presidential campaign season.

C-SPAN Classroom is a free membership service dedicated to supporting educators’ use of C-SPAN programming and websites in their classes or for research. C-SPAN Classroom has reached more than one million students since its inception in 1987.
