C-SPAN's Summer Educators' Conference

Each summer, C-SPAN hosts two teacher conferences in Washington, DC. The day-and-a-half long conferences are held 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.

This year, the conferences will be held on the following dates:
Middle School: Monday and Tuesday, July 24th - 25th
Middle School Conference Folder
High School: Thursday and Friday, July 27th - 28th
High School Conference Folder

Applications are now closed.
We have selected and notified 30 educators for each conference. Applications for the 2018 conferences will be available in early 2018.

At these conferences, middle and high school educators (grades 6-12) from around the country gather to learn more about C-SPAN and how to effectively integrate C-SPAN's online resources into their classrooms.

Conference participants will learn:

  • About C-SPAN's mission, programming, and event coverage.
  • About the features of C-SPAN Classroom's new website and how to incorporate the free resources available to educators including Bell Ringers, Lesson Plans, Constitution Clips, On This Day in History videos, as well as how to create, save, and share content on the site.
  • How to navigate C-SPAN's programs, websites, and resources.
  • About our StudentCam and Teacher Fellowship enrichment opportunities that are available to students and educators.
  • Examples of how colleagues nationwide have effectively incorporated C-SPAN's programming and resources into their curriculums to create engaging learning experiences for students.

C-SPAN's Teacher Fellowship Program

C-SPAN’s Fellowship program is for educators who have experience using C-SPAN’s programming in the classroom and can demonstrate innovative methods of integrating those programs into educational experiences.

For four weeks in July, 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. The Fellowship takes place at C-SPAN’s offices in Washington, DC. Each Fellow receives a stipend of $7,000 to cover housing, travel, and living expenses. Fellows will also participate in C-SPAN’s Summer Educators’ Conferences where they share their ideas and experiences using C-SPAN’s programs with conference attendees.

Applications are now closed.
The 2018 Fellowship application will be available this fall.
