Product Description

This is an enjoyable, engaging activity for Junior English classes (Grades 7-9), where students practice the art of conversation, writing, and presentation. Students are paired off. (I usually make the pairs myself, as I purposefully put students who do not normally talk a lot with each other.)

Students "interview" each other by engaging in a prolonged and meaningful conversation. While numerous guiding questions are provided, students are encouraged to find out about each other in a natural conversation, getting off screens and texting, and spend quality time with face-to-face contact.

After students converse and record, they are tasked with writing a character sketch of the person they spoke to. After writing, an optional activity I have students undertake when time permits, is to present their partner in a low-stakes oral presentation. In this way, the activity becomes a team-building one, as everyone in the class learns interesting details about each other.

Two Rubrics Included: Writing Rubric and Oral Presentation Rubric
