Our Conducting an Interview lesson plan gives students the strategies necessary to conduct a successful interview. The interview may be related to a school assignment, news gathering for an article, creating an oral history, or other purposes. The lesson includes the steps students will need to follow to prepare and conduct the interview, as well as the other skills necessary during the interview process. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to practice using recording devices as they interview each other. They will also come up with their own question to ask the other person. Students are also asked to read about Louis Braille and come up with six questions they would ask them if he were there.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to prepare, research, and identify the steps for conducting an interview, and use the information to conduct an effective interview.
