Colonial Williamsburg Electronic Field Trips: When Freedom Came—Feb. 16 at 1:00 p.m. on ETV
Students can discover how enslaved Americans made choices every day during the Civil War that helped bring about their freedom.
The CWEFT programs use 21st century technology to enrich the teaching of history and social studies, making the subjects exciting and relevant to today’s classrooms. The field trips are correlated to national standards and provide a dramatic and compelling learning experience for 4th and 5th grade students. Though schools may view the programs free and record them with 10-day fair use rights (can tape and use for 10 days from broadcast date, but must erase tape within 45 days), there are definite advantages to paying the fee to Colonial Williamsburg to participate.
By paying the fee to participate, schools get the outstanding teacher materials, get to keep the recorded program for the life of the tape and have access to the re-enactors and historians online and via a toll-free number. Schools pay approximately $500 per school for all seven programs, but rights for individual programs can be purchased. For information on paying the fee to participate in CWEFT, contact Dale Van Eck at CWEFT 1-800-761-8331 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Broadcast Schedule: 1:00–2:00 p.m. on ETV-HD
10:00–11:00 a.m. and 1:00–2:00 p.m. on IMC
Feb. 16, 2012 When Freedom Came (premiere) – Everyone knows Abraham Lincoln freed all the slaves or did he? Freedom came to enslaved people over the course of many months and years – and it arrived in different ways in different places. Discover how enslaved Americans made choices every day during the Civil War that helped bring about their freedom.
Mar. 15, 2012 Remember the Ladies – In 1776, Abigail Adams requested that her husband, future president John Adams, “remember the ladies” when establishing the government and the laws of the new nation. Examine the roles, responsibilities and daily activities of early American women.
Apr. 19, 2012 The Rights of Youth – Imprisonment, whipping, forced transportation, and even death were some of the punishments that courts sentenced children to in the 18th century. Witness how justice was administered at a time when criminal laws and sentencing guidelines made few or no exceptions for children.
*RIGHTS: SC schools may view with 10-day fair use rights. (Can record, but program must be used within ten days and erased/destroyed within 45 days.) ONLY schools that get a scholarship through eMedia OR pay CWEFT to participate can keep the copy of the program(s) for the life of the tape/DVD, receive the guides, get online access, and have phone interaction with the historians.
