Interviewing Skills

After learning about the steps of conducting good interviews the kids spent some time practicing conducting interviews with each other.

*Make an appointment.
*List questions.
*Collect materials.

*Introduce yourself. 
*Listen carefully and maintain eye contact.
*Take notes.
*Ask questions to clarify.

*Write the interview information in a way that can be shared.

I got to thinking how very many people we could interview, just for a short couple of minutes to start with. People have such interesting stories and we, as people, love to talk about ourselves, right? Interviewing is great practice in listening skills and writing key words so you can remember what was said later. 

I've heard socialization described as the ability to be a contributing member of society as a whole. This sounds like a step in that direction.
