      Fellow list members,



      I wanted to take a moment before the Labor Day holiday to remind you of our
      upcoming Social Studies forum session featuring C-SPAN Classroom.



      Our session will be at 8 p.m. Eastern (5 p.m. Pacific) on Wednesday
      (September 5) in TAPPED IN (http://www.tappedin.org). Joining me for this
      important session will be Meredith Rapp, C-SPAN Education specialist. We'll
      be looking at the updated C-SPAN Classroom website, as well as other
      features C-SPAN offers educators, including:



      The C-SPAN StudentCam contest, including up to $50,000 in total prizes to be
      awarded to student/teacher teams across the US who develop video content
      focusing on the 2008 Presidential campaign.



      The upcoming Presidential Libraries series, which begins September 7. Each
      week, C-SPAN will broadcast from one of the Presidential Libraries,
      including broadcasting never-before seen video and audio content from those
      US Presidents.



      2008 Campaign Clips, which include video clips which can be used to help
      students understand the evolving nature of the 2008 Presidential race.



      While we are hosting C-SPAN Classroom in our Social Studies forum, many of
      the resources available can be used in a cross-curricular setting, and
      teachers of any grade level and subject area are invited to attend.
      Interested persons are welcome to become TAPPED IN members (it's simple to
      join, and free). It's recommended that persons attending this session log
      in at least 10 minutes prior to the session time for assistance from TAPPED
      IN help desk personnel.



      I hope you'll join us for this interesting and informative session.



      Also, be sure to keep 8 p.m. Eastern (5 p.m. Pacific) September 26 open.
      We'll be featuring lesson plans and online resources for the premier of the
      Ken Burns film, "The War" in that session.



      Sincerely,



      Michael Hutchison
