In order to reach phase 1 of our goal, we had author, Dina Martin, have a talk at Sierra Elementary, Arvada, about reading. Her topic for the day was BETA reading vs reviewing. Here’s the news posted on Sierra’s Beta Club.
On Tuesday 12/2/2014, Sierra Elementary hosted author Dina Martin, to talk to 6th graders during reading class about BETA readers and reviewing. She read a whole chapter from her new manuscript draft–still hasn’t been seen by the editor–so that the students can comment and give feedback on the chapter. She also talked about the launching of space capsule, ORION Exploration Flight Test-1 and received reports later that more than half of the kids watched the launch that happened on 12/5/2014! Her new book draft called Taze Sloan’s ORION EFT-1 will be launched some time in 2015. Stay tuned for photos!
