Honoring Sen. Edward Kennedy 1932-2009

This evening Eight will be airing a special encore performance of American Experience's The Kennedys. It is an incredible documentary honoring the contributions of a political dynasty. Additionally, there is a whole host of educator resources available to connect students with this legacy. You can also view much of the broadcast online.

On the current site homepage today, you can rate your opinion and see public results of Sen. Edward Kennedy's contribution to several policy areas. Take some time to submit your own results. Share them with your students. Use them as a basis of discussion for issues going on today in our country. Where do they stand?

This content has direct connections to the Arizona Academic Social Studies Standard in the Civic strand. Share how you have put American Experience to use in your classroom and the discussions in your classrooms about the legacy the Kennedys have left us with today.
