This project requires students to plan and carry out an interview with an immigrant. The information gained from the interview is then used to write a biography.
The pack contains student printables for planning and conducting an interview, a planning framework for organising their interview data and a writing framework for producing the paragraphs of the biography.
An assessment rubric is included, as well as a reflection sheet for the students to complete so they can consider how effective their interview was and what they learned as a result.
