At the mandatory orientation for volunteers readers, many items were covered, including:
- The Read-Aloud Volunteer Handbook was distributed
- We watched and discussed Bradley Whitford reading Gordon Wilford McDonald Patridge by Mem Fox, from the Screen Actor’s Guild’s StorylineOnline.
- We listened to Mem Fox give a lesson on expressive reading aloud and discussed how we could improve our reading styles.
There is a large mandatory orientation in late September, and monthly orientations every month for people who join the program late.
