Thank you for your wonderfully detailed self-introductions and responses to Caroline Hellman’s article “In Defense of the Classroom.” Below, I have posted an interview with Professor Hellman. I also provide additional instructions on next week’s assignment.
For next week, I ask you to think about what makes a good interview. You will soon be conducting an interview of a fellow student soon as your first formal assignment. Please read, watch, and/or listen to the following profile/interview of VP Kamala Harris and Former President Barack Obama (who just published his memoir “A Promised Land.”) After reviewing the linked material, please post a comment about what you liked best or found interesting about the podcast profile of Kamala Harris AND the interview with Barack Obama.
- Let’s start with an article over the controversial cover Vogue Magazine used in the issue that featured her interview. Think about how visual imagery matters in the media today.
2. Listen to a podcast of the profile of Kamala Harris (Profile by Alexis Okeowo, Read by On-Line Editor, Chioma Nnadi)
4. Read this interview in Vanity Fair Interview with Barak Obama on his new memoir
Please post your response by Sunday, Feb. 14.
