Topic: INTERVIEW WITH AN EXPERT
Conduct an interview with 5 elementary school teachers, elementary students, or parents of elementary school children (or combination thereof). Some questions you might aIDress are the following:
What is your favorite aspect of this age group?
What is the most challenging aspect of this age group?
What do they look forward to doing next?
What struggles does the child face?
What worries them?
What are typical fears?
How do they get along with others?
How are their school days different from yours?
What skills have they mastered lately?
What are they working on mastering now?
How much have they grown physically in the past year?
What behavior could you do without?
What is fun to them?
Develop your findings in a paper of 2 pages. (commonalities and differences)
Include quotes, citations, and a reference page. The point is to see what it is like to be a child this age, live with a child this age, or work with children this age. Not all questions fit each subject; select and modify the questions to suit your subject and aID questions if necessary.
Remind the parents or teachers that this is a school assignment and interview material will be kept confidential.
