Redhawk Readers

Southeast’s Phi Kappa Phi Chapter 260 is leading a new service project that supports the PK—6 students and educators throughout our region. The project’s goal is for Southeast students, faculty and staff to read children’s books and build a video recording collection that is shared with regional elementary schools.

Redhawk Readers (Southeast students, faculty and staff) are invited to create video recordings reading a favorite children’s book.

Here's how:

  • Redhawk Readers will choose a good book.
  • Readers make a reservation to use the Heather MacDonald Greene Multimedia Center’s One Button Studio (hmgmc@semo.edu or call 573-986-4978) or contact the EDvolution Center (edvolution@semo.edu or 573-986-6881).
  • Redhawk Readers come to the studio and staff will get you started
  • The Redhawk Readers read their books aloud while video recording themselves
    • Copyright issues were investigated and publishers have been good about allowing permission to read and record their books.
    • Readers can learn about copyright
    • The Heather MacDonald Green Multimedia Center or the EDvolution Center can help with adding the copyright notice to readers’ video recordings.
  • Readers’ video recordings will be shared with the EDvolution Center.
  • The EDvolution Center will organize and make the video recordings accessible to the PK—6 educators.
  • Southeast Missouri PK—6 students will have fun listening to the Redhawk Readers.

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Barbara Glackin, chair of PKP Chapter #260 Redhawk Readers committee at bglackin@semo.edu or Dr. Suhair Amer, president of PKP Chapter #260 at samer@semo.edu.
