Literary Tour of South Carolina

Grades 3-12

In this series produced by South Carolina Department of Education and ETV, students will meet nationally recognized authors who call South Carolina home. As they learn about the writing process, students will hear what the authors have to say about making characters come alive on the page, learn how they create the plot for their stories and keep track of the action, and find out how important research is to any story, both fiction and non-fiction. (From our Streamline collection)
