Documentary Addresses State of Literacy in S.C.


Documentary Addresses State of Literacy in S.C.

In the documentary When the Bough Breaks, pediatricians, reading teachers and interventionists outline their strategies in teaching infants and early school age children literacy strategies at much earlier ages. The Education Oversight Committee (EOC) will host a premiere of the documentary, which has been produced and directed by Bud Ferillo, on April 8.

Dr. David Walsh, Jr., a nationally renowned psychologist and author, introduces the film with his findings on brain development through exciting advances in neuroscience that prove the value of early childhood reading initiatives and the importance of caring adults in the lives of children. Pat Conroy contributes a brief essay on reading and teaching to the film.

When the Bough Breaks addresses the state of literacy in South Carolina, reporting on the continuum of literacy in the life of a child and the consequences of not placing focus on the language development and reading skills of children. Portions of the film were shown on the March edition of ETV’s Education Insight. DVD copies of When the Bough Breaks will be distributed to South Carolina schools this spring.
