Activity 3B: Interview a Friend

In this activity, students will use an “interview protocol” (list of questions) to interview a classmate, a friend, a family member, or someone else from the community. Teachers are encouraged to have their students record the interview, and to use the words of the person interviewed to write a short (800 word) narrative similar in style to the In|Dignity narratives. Story Corps provides a wealth of resources for getting started with classroom interview projects. These materials can be found by on the Story Corps website.
