IMPORTANT AND TIMELY VIEWING FOR MAY – KEEP IT REAL  – FOR TEENS 14 AND ABOVE

As the spring semester comes to an end, our thoughts turn to proms, graduations and the start of summer vacations. Almost in an instant, this joyous, celebratory time of year can become a time of immense heartbreak and tragedy when a young person’s life is taken all too soon, as a result of risky behavior or inexperience.  South Carolina ETV encourages you to influence a teen in your life, age 14 or above, to view Keep It Real and consider the possibility that such a tragedy could occur in their life or the life of a friend or family member. These videos offer a reality check that may serve as a valuable lesson in avoiding risky behavior. But it won’t work unless they actually view them! Please encourage teens in your life to do so and give them fair warning that the videos are difficult to watch.

THE SOUTHERN CAMPAIGN OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

The Southern Campaign was critical in determining the outcome of the American Revolutionary War, yet the South’s importance has been downplayed in most historical accounts to date. Eight online educational lessons are based around short video segments produced in a documentary style, consisting of historical reenactments, demonstrations, interviews with historians, period artifacts and music, artistic renderings, and maps. Media for the series is on the web at SCETV’s KnowItAll.org (see below) and lesson plans are at SCETV’s LearningWhy.org.
