Capitol Classroom

Capitol ClassroomTVW’s hands-on civics education program Capitol Classroom teaches students how to participate directly in the state legislative process, by connecting them with professionals in Olympia via TVW video conferences. In Capitol Classroom students and teachers work with lobbyist volunteers to choose legislation to support, oppose, or amend. Then, through TVW video conferences, students communicate with their lobbyists during the session and track their legislation. The goal of Capitol Classroom is to provide a rich and immersive learning experience by investing students in the state legislative process.
