Interviewing Others

$ 4

As I noted in Being a Good Conversationalist, I believe being genuinely interested in finding out about another person is key to being good at conversations. Toward that end, I often have my students interview staff members, high school seniors, and/or family members to work on several conversational skills, especially the ability to follow the interviewee's statements with comments and follow-up questions. I teach my students that this ability serves two important functions: extending conversations and making their communicative partners feel truly listened to. Following are various forms to use for interviews, along with notes on therapeutic intervention.
