Thanks for the link. After the speech is delivered, the best presentation of political speeches can be found at the NY Times. They put a linked transcript and outline alongside the video itself. Take a look at Sarah Palin's speech to see how it works. Great for the classroom. I wonder how long it will take them to get the inaugural posted.
I am a Teacher Librarian in a K-5 building and we are also looking into showing the inauguration from the web. I understand that CNN will have the ceremony, etc., but does anybody know of an elementary level site that would have discussion information or other materials for teachers? Thanks in advance.
The NYCDOE will be working with ABC News to provide NYC schools with a live Internet video stream of the presidential inauguration. This is great news. A technician is going to check if we have a large enough bandwidth, which I think we do. I am going to prepare a brief lesson for my 2nd and 3rd grade classes for the students to go online before hand to enrich their understanding of the event.
