Erin Lange, a social studies teacher at Arundel High School in Gambrills, Maryland, is one of 30 educators from across the nation selected to attend C-SPAN Classroom’s 2017 Educators’ Conference in Washington, D.C., July 27-28, 2017.

The conference provides educators with the opportunity to explore C-SPAN’s programs and C-SPAN Classroom’s free primary source materials. Attendees discover how to incorporate these resources into their curriculums and create engaged learning experiences for students.

Lange competed with high school teachers from across the country to secure a place at the conference. C-SPAN provides roundtrip airfare, hotel accommodations and meals for the two days.

Participants were selected by a panel of C-SPAN representatives and evaluated based on their dedication to learning new resources, applying them in the classroom environment, and sharing their professional development experiences in their academic communities.

“The educators’ conference provides teachers with an opportunity to discover creative methods of incorporating C-SPAN’s programs into their curriculum,” said Craig McAndrew, C-SPAN Manager of Education Relations. “Our goal is to help teachers connect students with public affairs content to generate a better understanding of the three branches of government.”

Conference attendees will hear from C-SPAN staff and leadership, including Founder and Executive Chairman Brian Lamb, to learn more about the public affairs network. In addition, C-SPAN’s Senior Executive Producer and Political Editor Steve Scully will speak at the conference dinner.

The Educators’ Conference is sponsored by C-SPAN’s Education Foundation. C-SPAN is funded by America’s cable television companies, which supports C-SPAN Classroom. In Gambrills, C-SPAN is available locally through Comcast.
