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.
Today, I’m launching a new series. It’s called Reader to Reader. I’m excited.
The idea is to sit down with students who are participating in the Kindle Classroom Project, hear about their experience with their Kindle, and learn a little about their reading lives, including the book they’re reading now.
It won’t be fancy or glitzy — just two readers having a chat. But I do think that the result will be something special.
This first installment is a 10-minute talk with LaMiya, a 10th grader at Envision Academy in Oakland. She is a student in Nicole’s advisory and reads on a Kindle Fire.
