If you attended my session at NJCSS – Using C-SPAN Footage in the High School Social Studies Classroom – this post serves as a companion.

I plan on updating this page with some more information tonight after the conference… but in the meantime, here’s a link to the Google Presentation.
Session Objectives and Goals
Throughout the course of the session, I had four key goals:

- Highlight further opportunities for teachers to engage with C-SPAN
