NEW ETV Teacher Recertification Courses (continue to be offered in each subsequent session):

Connecting with Literacy Through Storytelling (20 renewal credits)

Storytelling should be part of a student’s educational experience because it is a literacy activity, a listening activity and a means of appreciating cultural diversity! In this course, renowned storytellers from across our nation share selections of stories from folk tales to animal tales to their own creations. Interviewed by SCETV, the tellers share information on the storytelling process and provide useful tips. And, they each demonstrate good storytelling techniques that both teachers and students can emulate. (Recommended for teachers of all grade levels)

Between the Waters: History Across the Curriculum at Hobcaw Barony, Series I (20 renewal credits)

This innovative course provides engaging ways to integrate history using SCETV’s immersive website Between the Waters.  Series I walks participants through the site, guiding an exploration of Hobcaw Barony’s history from Native American life through slavery, Reconstruction and both World Wars by examining focus sites on topics including food, hunting, sports, architecture, religion, art, and nature. Interviews with well-known scholars, archival film and photographs, nature footage, and classroom lesson plans provide a picture of the Baruch family’s Hobcaw retreat near Georgetown that is a South Carolina treasure. (Recommended for teachers of grades 3-12)

Teaching and Learning in Carolina Classrooms, Series I (20 renewal credits) (*NEW SPRING II)

Teaching and learning today is much more than the traditional lecture-based classroom, face-to-face interaction. Teachers are the facilitators of learning and must be learners themselves. The ETV and PBS programs in this course share messages of courage in education – to take risks, to advocate, to lead, and to share ideas. From looking at teacher training and retention to digital literacy and education options for students, from experiencing a year in schools in a struggling community to examining college and career readiness for all students, these programs allow us to learn from education leaders, students and teachers, and parents and community partners who work to make a difference each day in our SC classrooms. (Recommended for teachers of all grade levels)

(*This course does not start until SPRING II session)
