got feedback? Respond to our 2017 Discus Content Survey!

We are encouraging the Discus community to give us feedback on the Discus databases and resources. What resources do you love?  What do you use often?  Complete the 2017 Discus Content Survey. Teachers, media specialists, students, parents, library patrons, business people, and all South Carolina citizens are invited to respond. For questions about the survey, contact the Discus Office.


Encourage Students to Enter the "Letters About Literature" Writing Contest!

Encourage readers grades 4-12 to enter the national "Letters About Literature Writing Competition." To enter, readers write a personal letter to an author, living or dead, from any genre - fiction or non-fiction, contemporary or classic, explaining how that author's work changed the student's way of thinking about the world or themselves. DEADLINE: December 9, 2017. Visit the ReadSC web site for contest guidelines, teacher guides, and additional information.
