This is A-State Connections on KASU.  I’m Johnathan Reaves. This is the weekly segment called “A-State Connections and Create@State: Making Connections That Count”.  In this interview, I spoke with Dr. Dixie Keys.  She is a Professor of Middle Level Education.  She came to the studios with her students Olivia Peeler, Jennifer Reves, and Lindsey Hart.  Keys taught Peeler, Reves, and Hart how to develop a new curriculum.  The students participated in a round table about their development of digital text sets during the National Council of Teachers of English conference in Houston in November.  KASU News Director Johnathan Reaves started the interview by asking Dr. Keys about the new curriculum.  Click on the Listen button for the entire interivew.
