Ghostwriter

Ideal for Grades: 2 - 6
Duration: 16 units, each with 4 or 5 30-minute episodes
Closed Captioned
Producer: 1994 Children's Television Workshop

Ghostwriter is about the lives and adventures of six kids who share a big secret: a friendly ghost helps them solve mysteries. But the real secret is that this irresistible series captivates kids and teaches them to love writing and reading.

Set in an urban background, the half-hour programs feature a multi-ethnic and multi-talented cast of children who solve neighborhood mysteries with the help of their intriguing friendly ghost, who communicates only through reading and writing.

Targeted at 7 to 10-year olds - but suitable for all elementary students - Ghostwriter combines the best of music videos with the imagery and energy of popular movies and television.

Studies show that Ghostwriter particularly appeals to economically disadvantaged and minority children.

Childrens' Television Workshop set three goals for this series:
--Motivate children to enjoy and value reading and writing;
--Demonstrate effective reading and writing strategies;
--Provide children with compelling opportunities to read and write.

Rights granted with purchase include: a) life of media audiovisual use, b) public performance, c) campus or building closed circuit.
