Part 1: The Life Story Interview (5 points)

We will use 2 class periods to interview your interviewee (see below for interview guidelines). In addition to taking notes, consider recording the interview so that you may refer back to it. Completing this part of the assignment is worth 5 points.

Due to the intimate nature of the interview topics, your interviewee may not feel comfortable answering certain questions and should not be pressured to respond. Furthermore, as an interviewer, you should refrain from commenting on the interviewee’s answers except for those responses that require active listening and empathy.
