This activity is a short student interview perfect for a Speech class, or any course in which public speaking will be a component of the curriculum.
Students will pair up with a peer and conduct this 15 minute interview, jotting down notes of their partner's response as they go. This should take about 10-15 minutes per student. After all information has been gathered, students will write a formal introduction of their peer using the interesting facts they learned from their interviews.
These introductions will then be presented to the class in a short, 1-2 minute, mini speech.
