WASHINGTON – C-SPAN recently announced that Joseph Stoll has been named one of three recipients of C-SPAN’s 2017 Teacher Fellowship
Program. Stoll teaches U.S. History and U.S. Government to high school students at L.C. Bird in Chesterfield. He is an AP U.S. exam reader, and he teaches a U.S. History course at Reynolds Community College in Richmond.
Now in its 24th year, C-SPAN’s Fellowship Program invites teachers nationwide to apply for an opportunity to collaborate with the network in their Washington headquarters. Fellows will spend f
our weeks during the summer developing new educational resources with C-SPAN’s Education Relations team for C-SPAN Classroom.
Participants are selected by a panel of C-SPAN representatives and evaluated based on their innovative use of C-SPAN programming in their curriculum, dedication to learning new technologies, and commitment to professional development. Each Fellow receives an award valued at $7,000 that includes housing and travel expenses.
“Every summer C-SPAN looks forward to collaborating with current teachers as part of our Fellowship Program. Their subject matter expertise offers fresh new ideas and helps generate content for teachers around the country,” said Craig McAndrew, C-SPAN Manager of Education Relations.
The Fellowship Program is sponsored by C-SPAN’s Education Foundation. C-SPAN is funded by America’s cable television companies, which support C-SPAN Classroom. In Chesterfield, C-SPAN is available locally through Comcast cable, satellite, and other services.
Fellows will arrive in Washington July 3, 2017. Their program will coincide with C-SPAN’s Summer Educators’ Conferences for middle and high school teachers (July 24-25 and July 27-28). During the conferences, each of the Fellows will present how they use C-SPAN in their classrooms.
