      > In perhaps the most important session held yet in the Social Studies
      > forum, filmmaker Ken Burns will join us for an interactive session about
      > the re-airing of "The Civil War" on PBS. This special session will be
      > held at 7:30 p.m., September 12, in TAPPED IN (http://www.tappedin.org).
      > The session is open to all teachers and education professionals, but
      > especially middle school and high school social studies teachers.
      > Also joining us will be representatives from PBS and WETA, which worked
      > with Burns's Florentine Films to create the series in 1990. The film
      > will be re-released with enhanced video and audio features. A companion
      > web site will be launched on August 29, containing resources,
      > information about the episodes, and lesson plans. The web site is
      > located at http://www.pbs.org/civilwar.
      > Because we are expecting a large crowd for this session, we respectfully
      > are requiring the following:
      > People are invited to ask questions of Ken about the series and his
      > views on the war in advance by "paging" them to Michael Hutchison in
      > TAPPED IN. Instructions on doing this can be found on the main TAPPED
      > IN page (http://www.tappedin.org). Questions will be selected and
      > submitted to Ken before the session so he can prepare for answers.
      > Questions can be submitted in TAPPED IN 24 hours a day, seven days a
      > week.
      > In addition, everyone who wishes to participate in the live session MUST

      > SHARP for a short briefing on how to post questions and maintain proper
      > decorum in the session. Attendance in the briefing session is required
      > to help assure that things go as smoothly as possible for everyone.
      > Once Ken's session begins, no one will be admitted without special
