English Homework:
Schooldays Interview

©1998 Gareth Pitchford

For your homework this week I would like you to conduct an interview with a member of your family about their time at school. You're going to ask them questions about their schooldays.

Before you start your interview I would like you to prepare about ten questions to ask them. Write them down in advance so you don't forget them. Try and make the questions interesting and try and avoid questions that will just produce "Yes" and "No" answers.

Tape the interview if you can, as this will help you write down the questions and the answers. Bring your written versions (your 'transcripts') of the interview into school.
