Purcellville social studies teacher Patti Benalayat has been selected to participate in a two-day middle school conference sponsored by C-SPAN Classroom July 23-24.
According to C-SPAN Classroom, Benalayat was one of 28 middle school teachers from around the national selected to the conference, which will take place in Washington, D.C.
The conference provides educators with the opportunity to hear from guest speakers and explore C-SPAN Classroom’s free teaching resources, so the teachers can learn how to incorporate these resources into their classrooms.
Participants were selected by a panel of C-SPAN representatives and evaluated based on their commitment to learning new educational resources, applying them in the classroom environment and sharing their professional development experiences in their academic communities.
“We’re excited to introduce educators to C-SPAN’s Video Library, an online archive containing more than 240,000 hours of searchable, sharable content that teachers and students can use as a primary source in the classroom,” C-SPAN Manager of Education Relations Craig McAndrew said.
