Nov. 29, 1:00–1:27 p.m. IMC

This special edition of In Our Schools is produced by eMedia, part of the SC Department of Education, and SCETV. Montessori is education for life. Montessori, a hands-on, discovery approach to learning, is rapidly growing in popularity throughout the state. Multi-age classrooms, peer teaching, independent work, and respect for others and the environment are hallmarks of the Montessori method. This program introduces parents, educators and community members to the Montessori philosophy and curriculum, the history of the Montessori method, and how students in public, private and charter schools are benefitting from Montessori. Katie Golfus, SCDE’s coordinator for Montessori, traveled with the ETV crew throughout the state to tape in classrooms and interview educators to get a clear picture of growing, successful Montessori programs, including East Cooper Montessori Charter, Abner Montessori, Montessori of Anderson, Brockman Elementary, and Five Oaks of Simpsonville.

In Our Schools - Outstanding Career Guidance in Middle School, Part 1
To celebrate Career Development Month, this special In Our Schools program is Part 1 of a two-part series that looks at how Forestbrook Middle School in Horry County has created a world-class career exploration program that prepares students for high skill, high wage and big demand careers. In addition, we’ll meet the National and State Career Specialist of the Year 2011 to learn about best practices and the role of career and technology education in workforce development.
In Our Schools - Outstanding Career Guidance in Middle School, Part 2
A strong career exploration program is essential in middle school to prepare students for career and technology (CTE) course selections in high school. In Part 2, we'll see how Forestbrook Middle School in Horry County works with parents and businesses to enhance work-based learning and classroom guidance for students. Also, we'll hear about their successful transition process as students matriculate from elementary to middle school and then to high school or career centers.

Repeats Dec. 23, 3:30–3:37 p.m. SCC

This special Project Discovery program, produced by the South Carolina Department of Education’s eMedia team with SCETV, will take students to Lemmon Hill Plantation near Winnsboro to explore a historic home with remnants of authentic indigo paint and an unusual decorated ceiling in a bedroom that now holds the bed belonging to an important South Carolinian! We’ll discuss what we can learn about life long ago from visiting this midlands home and why it is important to preserve these hallmarks of our South Carolina history. This program is recommended for students in grades 3-12.
Join hosts eMedia’s Bette Jamison, SCDE Social Studies Consultant Lewis Huffman and Katie Mixon to learn why settlers living in our coastal areas made their way inland to build working plantations as we take a look at life during the 1790’s and early 1800’s in the piedmont region of our state. We’ll see how Lemmon Hill Plantation, rescued and restored over the last few years to its original beauty, is an example of the refined living that was rather unique to what was the back country at that time. During this period of our history, western Fairfield county was a bastion of extreme wealth with cotton and indigo grown abundantly in the fertile fields and beautiful, blue granite mined in nearby quarries.
This program is Part 1 of two Project Discovery programs produced at Lemmon Hill Plantation, each approximately 27 minutes in duration. Part 2 will air in February and focus on the contributions of the African Americans who helped South Carolina plantations prosper. As craftsmen they built fine and useful furnishings, some of which we’ll get to see in this program. Special thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Chuck Corley, owners of Lemmon Hill Plantation, for working with eMedia and SCETV to produce this interesting program that allows South Carolina students to go back in time to see what life was like over 200 years ago in this area of our state!

The SC Department of Education’s eMedia team continues to work with the outstanding Riverbanks Zoo and Garden to feature educational aspects of the many wonderful animals and their habitats in these fast-paced programs. The content is designed to support South Carolina Science Academic Standards in grades K–6 such as Characteristics of Organisms, Animals, Habitats and Adaptations, Organisms and their Environments, and Ecosystems. Riverbanks Roundup programs each have a goal; are designed around themes; take in consideration of what students should know, feel and do after viewing; and also include conservation messages.
Riverbanks Roundup – A Day in the Life is the NEW program that premieres in November! Follow the Riverbanks crew as they go through a day of caring for the over 2,000 animals and all the varied plant life. It’s a daily process of feeding, caring and cleaning. From food preparation to going behind the scenes in the lion area, this program will give students a good view of what a day in the life of a zoo keeper is like!
Riverbanks Roundup – Fact or Fiction repeats in December and January! Dive right in to investigating animal fact versus animal fiction! Since animals accomplish amazing maneuvers to survive, how do we tell fact from fiction? Investigate with zoo animal keepers as we swim with piranhas and talk to tortoises to sniff out the truth!
