1. Practical: Interview two people and write their speech as a news report.
Lisa Andrews (Mum) & Scott Andrews (Dad)
What is the most important thing to you? And why?
Mum: Family.Because family is very important and you are my only daughter and only child so you are very special to us.
Dad: You and your mother. Because Family matters more than materialistic things.
2. Write a short news story (posted to your blog) based on these interviews (no more than 500 words).
Today my parents agreed that I am the most important thing to them.
Dad, Scott Andrews said that I am the most important thing to them because I am ‘the only child they will ever have’.
My mother, Lisa Andrews said she had me when she was young. “Around the age, you are now,” She said.
I am eighteen.
“You have always been what I have built my life around,” she said.
“Everything your mother and I did was for you,” Scott said.
3. Then take a photo of each of your interviewees and post a photo of each to Twitter with a one sentence grab from the interview
4. Write a few sentences about how you went about this activity and how you felt it assisted (or otherwise) your learning.
I think this activity assisted in my learning because it helped me relate the writing to real life and gain interview skills (even if I am just interviewing my parents).
