A LITERARY TOUR OF SC, SERIES I

(Recommended for teachers of all grade levels)

6-8 week session  
Recertification: 20 Renewal Credits
Cost: $75.00

In this course, we meet twelve nationally recognized authors who call South Carolina home. In the video series produced by ITV with ETV, ETV cameras traveled across the state to interview thirty-seven authors with connections to our state, learning about them, their passion for reading and writing, and their research and writing process. Through these lessons we learn what these authors have to say about making characters come alive on the page, how they create plot for their stories and keep track of the action. Additionally, they discuss how important research is to any story, both fiction and non-fiction.

In this first group of twelve authors who make up Series I, we learn from a diverse set of writers with varied backgrounds, education and stories to share. This professional development series is a master-teacher series where educators can learn first-hand about writing from some of the best writers and then share this information with students (SCETV produced).
