Podcasts of Speaking of Schools, supported by the South Carolina Department of Education, are published each Monday afternoon. Host Doug Keel, who has been involved in education in the state for over 40 years, talks with providers and supporters of education including administrators, teachers, students, parents, and others interested in improving teaching and learning in South Carolina. Join us as we're "Speaking of Schools."
This Month on SOS
The curtain is beginning to close on Act l of the 2013-2014 academic year: semester exams will be taking place at schools throughout the state, and we’ll soon be celebrating a fresh new year. As we move toward 2014, Speaking of Schools will continue to update listeners as to education opportunities for teachers, students, and the general public. Podcasts over the next several weeks will focus on innovative programs that have been recognized by Furman’s Riley Institute and South Carolina Future Minds. The Dick and Tunky Riley WhatWorksSC awardees were selected from over eighty applications, and we’re pleased to feature many of the ten that were designated as semi-finalists, finalists, and the winner of the award for 2013. As has become a podcast tradition, the South Carolina All State Orchestras will entertain us during the weeks of Christmas and New Years Day, and we’ll have opportunities to learn about happenings with the SC cohort of Teach For America, and another innovative program out of Beaufort County. We’ll let science teachers know about a great opportunity coming up during the summer from USC and there will be much, much more to keep you informed on upcoming Speaking of Schools podcasts.
