Reader to Reader, the KCP Podcast

Episode #2: Tamera, Oakland

favicon After a brief (one-year) respite, I’m back with the second episode of Reader to Reader: The Kindle Classroom Project Podcast!

Reader to Reader is a 10-minute interview with a student participating in the Kindle Classroom Project.

Yesterday I had the privilege to sit down with Tamera, a 12th grader in Oakland. She just received a Kindle Paperwhite from her teacher, Maria.

In this episode, Tamera talks about the book she’s reading, where she’s going to college, and why she’s a reader. But there’s also a special twist — because Tamera was a KCP student back in 2012-13, when she was a ninth grader and when the KCP had only 13 Kindles!

Please let me know what you think about this episode — and include ideas for how to make this podcast a real podcast. For example: Should I be more prepared? Should there be music? What questions should I ask? Should I be less energetic?

My hope is to continue interviewing students and putting out a podcast episode at least every month. If things go well, maybe I’ll send Reader to Reader to iTunes! Thank you very much for your support. favicon
