Top 10 Interview Project Guidelines

 

Working collaboratively and sharing ideas are an essential part of this class and the “real” world. To help us get comfortable with these skills you’ll partner up to get to know a classmate. You’ll then present an overview of your partner to our class.   Here are the steps we’ll take to complete this project:

 

1.  Create a list of 10 interview questions. Focus on open ended questions rather than questions that can be answered with 1-2 words. 

 

2.  Interview a partner. Make sure you take good notes regarding their responses.  

 

3.  Organize a short speech introducing the class to your partner. Make sure you include the following:

  • A brief introduction: name, general impressions. Avoid starting with “I’m going to tell you about…”.   

  • Body: Share what you learned about your partner. Avoid listing as questions

          and answers.

  • A brief conclusion: leave us with a final thought about your partner.

 

 

4.  Practice presenting. Focus on the elements of public speaking we discussed in   class.

 

5.  Practice again.

 

6.  Practice some more.
