Author-In-Residence Program

Renaissance Publications, LLC is offering an Author-InResidence Program for 8th and 11th grade social studies classes in public and private middle schools in South Carolina through the SC Arts Commission Arts Project Support Grant.

This residency for 8th and 11th grade students will supply the schools with a class set of one of Renaissance Publications, LLC books with supplemental materials for the teacher which connect the narratives in the book to the 8th and 11th grade South Carolina social studies standards. After students have read narratives from his book, Dr. Curry will conduct one session with the class where he shows that history is alive and an important source of connection to our communities. The residency includes an exhibition of artifacts and visual art to help give form to the narratives being discussed. Extending the experience, the students are given the opportunity to explore the exhibition and write their reflections.
