MOREnet encourages Missouri schools and libraries to take advantage of an opportunity to learn about the U.S. presidency in a free program sponsored by the National Park Service, U.S Presidential Libraries and Museums, the Internet2 community and cultural and historic organizations nationwide. The program, the annual Presidential Primary Source Project (PPSP), is a series of free, standards aligned, 45 minute interactive videoconferencing programs aimed at students in grades 5-12. The series will run from January - March 2016. In addition to the interactive video component, each program will also be live streamed and recorded for on demand viewing for free.
This year's theme is "Presidential Powers and the Constitution." Through the use of primary source documents and interactive videoconferencing, the 2016 program series will explore how different presidents in different eras have interpreted and exercised presidential powers.
