I will be looking at Rough Drafts This Friday, 3/5 (Periods 1,2,3) and Monday, 3/8 (Periods 5,6).

Final Draft is due Wednesday, 3/10 (Periods 1,2,3) – Thursday, 3/11 (Periods 5,6).

Here’s what we want:

  • Introduction: Setting. Description of scene/setting. How it was set up. Why you chose this person. Relationship to this person.
  • Description of person. Show, don’t tell.
    • Looks. (Details.)
    • Voice and choice of words. Delivery.
    • Personality. (Bitter? Enthusiastic? Happy? Lost in memories? Crabby?  What?)
  • The intro/description should be 350-400+ words.
  • Interview.
    • Questions you asked, followed by answers and follow up.
    • You may summarize their answers, but please include at least three good quotes (word for word, as close as you can get) that use the person’s actual words.
  • Conclusion: Discuss what you learned, most surprising info, most interesting, change in attitude toward older people, etc. About 75-100+ words.
  • Come up with a creative title that sums up the interview.
    • NOT THIS: “Elder Interview”  (Hrrmmm.)More like THIS: “My Grandpa and his Jealous Chihuahua”   (LOL)
  • Extra Credit: pics.
