If you teach high school history, politics, civics, or even media studies then perhaps Cross Country Checkup can help ...without adding to your workload.
Every week our program looks at one of the big news issues of the week. We can offer your students content and insight into both the issue and our approach. We can also offer access to the program.
For students of politics, history, or civics, we could make available directly to the students some background material such as links, newspaper and magazine articles, and columns on the topic. They just have to ask.
For students of media studies who want insight into our approach, we could offer some correspondence with students, by e-mail or even a webpage, offering a list of the topics considered for each week, and the pros and cons as they relate to our programming.
For all classes, depending on the demand, we could offer students an easier opportunity to call-in to the program to voice their opinions. This might help students feel more engaged by the topic and the assignment. Also, depending on the demand (and his schedule), host Rex Murphy could be available by telephone for a 15-20 minute in-class question-and-answer session.
