The Riley Award, Spanish Teacher of the Year competition and Wofford’s Shared Worlds summer program
Monday - March 29, 2010
On this week's podcast, we'll visit with a couple of Wofford Professors and learn about Shared Worlds, a creative summer writing program for rising 8th through 12th graders that is in its third year. In this especially innovative program, students will work in groups, collaborating to create all aspects of an imaginary world. While refining their worlds as a member of a group, participants also will write fiction set in their worlds. Also this week,the Program Services Director at South Carolina School Improvement Council (SC-SIC) will salute the winner and honorable mention schools in the Dick and Tunky Riley Award program that were recently announced, and we'll find out how outstanding Spanish teachers in public and private schools across the state can be recognized in the Spanish Teacher of the Year competition coordinated by The Citadel. And just in case you missed the announcement of the Carolina First Palmetto's Finest award-winning schools, we'll have that for you too! Join us!
