On Monday, October 26, 2015, Ms. Karen Powell’s RTI students Skyped with Silas House, author of the book Same Sun, Here, which we just finished reading during our RTI classes. The students enjoyed the book and were excited to hear and speak with the author.
Mr. House, is a NY Times Best Selling Author and and is a Kentucky native of Laurel County. The students wrote their own questions and learned in-depth details about the story and the writing process through interviewing Mr. House who is currently the NEH Chair in Appalachian Studies at Berea College. A big Thank You to Mr. House, our Principal Mr. Reppert, Mr. Brandon Reynolds and Mrs. Detrina Owens for helping make this possible for our students at RCMS.
