READING AN INTERVIEW NARRATIVE English I PreAP
WHAT IS AN INTERVIEW NARRATIVE? An interview narrative is a written work where the interviewer converts the information from a “Q & A format” to a readable article that includes the information from the interviewee, as well as descriptive details and the overall impression of the interviewee. The interview narrative is where the interviewer becomes a writer and uses his/her creativity to write good prose.
DIRECT & INDIRECT QUOTATIONS Direct Quotations are word- for-word quotations. They should be written inside of quotation marks. EXAMPLES “Have another slice of pie,” my mother said. “No, thank you,” I replied. “I can not eat another slice of pie.” Indirect Quotations summarize and are not written inside quotation marks. EXAMPLES: My mother offered me another slice of pie. I told her that I could not eat another slice.
