Intended for middle and high school educators, the publication provides information about the C-SPAN networks and facilitates the use of the network's programming as a teaching resource. The section on the C-SPAN cable networks contains information on C-SPAN, C-SPAN 2, C-SPAN Audio 1, and C-SPAN Audio 2, regularly scheduled programs, ways to obtain the program schedule, viewing tips, the public affairs video archives at Purdue University, publications for purchase, and transcript sales. Teacher suggestions for using C-SPAN in the classroom provide applications in a variety of subjects areas. An explanation of how to use a TV and VCR as tools for active learning precedes lesson plans for C-SPAN programming. The eight lessons include appropriate subject area, objectives, pre-class preparation, a student assignment, length of time required, and follow-up recommendations. A program schedule grid and the C-SPAN copyright policy follow a guide for writing a letter to a U.S. senator or representative. (CK)
