Bell Work: Get materials out: SB text, spiral, 15 INTERVIEW QUESTIONS (LAST NIGHT’S HW), highlighter, pen/pencil Turn in green interview planning sheet (MUST be signed by a parent) Add entry title 1.8: Two Versions of one Narrative to your spiral after 1.7 leaving a couple of pages for any work we do later Add entry title 1.9: Reading an Interview Narrative leaving a page or two for any work we do now and later Add entry title 1.10: Examining the Art of Questioning Finish 1.7 character interview with your partner (5-10 minutes). Practice interviewing and answering at least 3 of the 5 questions and writing the answers in your text or spiral. HW (by Monday): turn this interview transcript into a BRIEF interview narrative focusing on creating the VOICE of your character by using a combination of DIRECT and INDIRECT quotations.
Activity 1.9: Reading an Interview Narrative (pages 40-44)
Read “Learning Targets” and “Before Reading.” Read #1 and respond to Question 2 using information from the photos below of Chuck Liddell:
•UNDERLINE all direct quotations
DURING READING Mark the TEXT by HIGHLIGHTING details about Liddell that would NOT likely appear in a transcript version of the interview (things that an author uses to embellish the story with that would not come from asking a question) Look for narrative details about how the interview subject: Speaks/speech Acts/actions Looks/appearance •UNDERLINE all direct quotations
Wednesday 10-15-14 HW: 1.10 Evaluating an Interview Transcript/Write your questions
You’ve been introduced to an interview narrative about Chuck Liddell, now you will look at an interview transcript (note: the interview narrative you read in 1.9 is NOT based upon this transcript in 1.10). Now you are going to evaluate the transcript questions. In your text (page 46 and 47): FIRST: Label each questions O (open-ended) or C (close-ended) SECOND: Evaluate the effectiveness of each question 1 = I learned a lot about the person from this question 2 = I learned something about the person, but I wanted to learn more 3 = I did not learn very much about the person from this question Finally, read the following slides for instructions on how to evaluate your own questions (you should have 15 already from last night’s homework). Revise these if needed to make sure they are OPEN ENDED. WRITE at least 5 more STRONG OPEN ENDED questions for your interview transcript. Where do you have holes? PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU READ the following slides as they are IMPORTANT in developing your interview questions – INTERVIEW QUESITONS due tomorrow, Thursday, IN YOUR SPIRAL OR SEPARATE SHEET OF PAPER!
The beginning You’ll want to start with background questions. Questions about where he/she grew up, what life was like, etc. You’ll want to get background of where they are now: career, family, etc. This is information you will then use in your narrative introduction and possible closing. With that in mind, evaluate your original opening (background) questions and come up with a couple more questions that could lead to your higher level thinking questions.
The middle and end The middle questions should require a bit more reflection on your interviewee’s part. This is where a lot of the coming of age and growth will be explained. The end may want to connect back to life now. How everything comes together to have led them to the place he/she is now.
Questions don’t have to be “at what point did you grow up
Questions don’t have to be “at what point did you grow up?” Here are some additional ideas for questions: Who has been the most important person in your life? Can you tell me about him or her? Who has been the biggest influence on your life? What lessons did that person teach you? What did you think your life would be like when you were older? What are you proudest of? When in life have you felt most alone? If you could hold on to one memory from your life forever, what would that be? How has your life been different than what you’d imagined? How would you like to be remembered? Do you have any regrets? What are the most important lessons you’ve learned in life? If you could go back in time and talk to your younger self during those times, what would you say?
