This fun activity was a great kickoff to a bigger assignment. As an early year mixer, my co-teacher and I paired up students to interview each other. Students had 15-20 minutes to answer the prompts given on the Peer Interview form. Next, students were asked to select 3 things that they learned about the person in the interview and create a short story about them. The story needed to be at least 3 paragraphs long, and it had to be based on the person that was interviewed.
This handout can be used in many different ways, but this proved to be a very fun way for students to practice writing and meet new people.
