Register by noon on October 7 with school name, tech name, tech email address, tech phone, IP address, plus the number of participating students and what grade they are in.
During the videoconference, Dr. Andrew Hill, the economic education adviser at the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, will discuss the politics, operations, and importance of the First Bank of the United States (1791-1811).
Today author Carolyn Lesser is connecting to Linda Altoonian’s journalism classes at Martin High School in the Arlington (TX) Independent School District for the first of two customized videoconferences.
Carolyn will be discussing the “Plight of Polar Bears” with Ms. Altoonian’s students. She will share her work and her stories of traveling to visit polar bears in their natural habitat. The participating students will then be assigned a writing project to work on between now and the next videoconference connection on October 13.
