For teaching the techniques of a good interview, I use this activity to show kids how to follow up questions and how to take down quotes. It's a lot of fun for the kids to role play the scenarios and to be in the "press." I use this with Intro to Journalism students, but it could be used in other ways. I include a homework assignment in which the students have to write their own version of one of the stories as a news article that incorporates the quotes from the interviews. An accompanying handout "Interviewing Role Playing Handout" can be purchased for .99 if you would like to use it as well, but it is not necessary.
