RES fourth graders were featured on Vermont Public Radio on February 8, during Vermont Edition at noon and 7 p.m.! They were interviewed in January for the VPR radio program Dorothy’s List, about the children’s books nominated for the Dorothy Canfield Fisher award. Every month Dorothy’s List features a different title, and RES scholars were interviewed about El Deafo, an award-winning book written and illustrated by Cece Bell. VPR reporter Amy Noyes interviewed our scholars as they discussed El Deafo, and she also recorded the fourth graders’ questions for the author. You can listen to the recorded show any time online at the Dorothy's List podcast. (link below)
A full transcript of the podcast and some wonderful photos of our scholars are available on the Dorothy's List website (link below)
Principal Berry also created a video about the day Ms. Noyes visited RES to interview fourth graders.
Dorothy's List was an amazing opportunity for our scholars and school community! We can't thank VPR and Dorothy’s List enough for choosing RES to represent Vermont student readers.
