CHICO, Calif. - Students across the country are learning about the inquiry into the president and those at Marsh Junior High are being educated to understand the political process.

Ryan Willard, a history teacher at the school, just recently discovered CNN10 and has been putting it to use in his teachings.

"They are just trying to basically give you a snapshot of as many things as you can that are going on currently in the world and put it in kid terms so that way it is upbeat and fun and they can process it," said Willard of the program.

Willard said students like the videos and he encourages them to use it on their own time to explore current events.

"How do we look at this story and try to figure out is there something they are trying to get at is there an agenda? It is all positive, it's making them look at the story a little closer and make their own judgment," he continued.

The history teacher said he has received plenty of positive feedback from parents about helping to keep their children up to date on current events and his students themselves express liking toward the program.

Right now, students are learning about impeachment.

"I learned that he made that phone call and I don't usually watch the news, so when I saw that I was like oh that is interesting, so now I want to learn more about the phone call and stuff," said sixth-grader, Candice.

"I learned that impeachment is a very rare thing that happens to presidents, so I guess I am kind of lucky to be alive with it, but also kind of not lucky," said sixth-grader, Kwan.

Willard is one of many teachers who use CNN10 and said he tries to show the videos about three times a week.
