C-SPAN in the Classroom, v1 n1 Fall 1993
The intention of this guide is to serve as a forum for college faculty members to share ideas and articles about using C-SPAN programming in college classrooms and in academic research. The first article, "C-SPAN as a 'Lecture Launcher'" (Stephen Frantzich) illustrates how well-chosen segments of C-SPAN programming can be used to stimulate discussion in a political science course. The next article, "Capitol Hill Comes to a Classroom in Maine Through C-SPAN" (Janet M. Martin), concludes that students become more attentive analysts and observers through the use of C-SPAN. The third article, "C-SPAN in the College Classroom: A Student's Perspective" (Elizabeth Aranza) provides a student view of the use of C-SPAN. The fourth article, "C-SPAN in a Journalism Class" (Christopher McClure) cites an assignment in which C-SPAN televised speeches are used to teach analytic skills. The fifth article, "Expanding Awareness Through C-SPAN" (Janette Kenner Muir), gives several examples of using edited C-SPAN programs in political communication and rhetoric courses. The next article, "C-SPAN Video: Moving Beyond the Text" (John Sullivan), shows that examples can be used in a variety of fields to provoke students to go beyond the text. The seventh article, "Videotape Library Management" (Robert J. Snyder), provides suggestions on how to organize a videotape library. The final article, "Using C-SPAN to Teach Critical Thinking in the College Classroom" (John Splaine), presents a case study describing the use of a three-minute segment of C-SPAN to raise questions about messages, strategies, and substance. The guide concludes with further information regarding the use of C-SPAN. (CK)
