Santa Barbara, Calif. (Sept. 8, 2015) – As part of the 11th Annual Constitution Day Conference in California, ABC-CLIO Solutions will offer participants open access to its American Government and American History video learning modules and databases. The digital resources are part of more than 300 other video modules already available.
The conference involves a tour of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, the Discovery Center and Air Force One. Additionally, the event includes multiple interactive teacher workshop sessions, as well as free lessons from sponsor organizations, including ABC-CLIO Solutions discussing its American Government and American History video learning modules.
“As we celebrate Constitution Day, we encourage educators and students to reflect on our nation’s rich history, and consider how our government has evolved since the Founding Fathers signed our Constitution over 200 years ago,” said Becky Snyder, ABC-CLIO President. “Through the American Government and American History modules, ABC-CLIO includes multimedia assets and primary sources that offer students a new way to learn about our nation’s significant events and understand the government that affects their daily lives.”
The American Government database explores all three branches of government, how the government was founded, domestic and foreign policy, political and economic systems and state and local government. Alternatively, the American History database investigates American politics, science, culture, people, and the events that shaped the United States. ABC-CLIO is one of the first publishers in the education industry to create comprehensive video modules with direct instruction from key faculty. The modules are professionally produced and include supplemental resources to expand students’ understanding of social studies, science and English language arts topics.
The California Campaign for the Civic Mission of Schools Annual Constitution Day Conference is the first in a series of ongoing partnerships and professional development opportunities ABC-CLIO Solutions is offering as it continues to build its database and resource portfolio. Educators who are unable to attend the conference can still receive complimentary trial to the American Government and American History modules.
