C-SPAN Helping Teachers

If you’ve never checked out C-SPAN’s website for teachers, you really should.

C-SPAN in the Classroom offers materials for Classroom Civics and Social Studies Teachers. With elections this fall it’s a good idea to start collecting materials now.

No, I’m not being paid by C-SPAN, but I did work there for a year, a long time ago.

Great people. They’ll help you find video you can use in your classroom too. Check it out.


No Governator Autograph

“As of September 1, 2008, the Commission on Teacher Credentialing no longer prints or provides a paper copy as an official document.
The online official record of your document will be viewable to you and your potential employer directly through the Commission’s website in approximately 48 hours.”

So says my e-mail from the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. The last time I renewed my credential, I paid my money and received a nice certificate, signed by the current California governor.

I’m all for reducing paper and storing documents online, but is it wrong to want a certificate with my name on it signed by Arnold Schwarzenegger?
