Lesson Plan - Get It!


Before you get started with this lesson, name one family member or friend that you would like to tell others about. Now, you have exactly one minute to tell your teacher everything you can about that person!

You probably told your teacher many things about the person you chose to speak about!

In this lesson, you are going to improve on this technique of public speaking.

To be able to tell other people things about your friend or family member, you will need to interview him or her first. You will choose a person that you are able to interview either in person, by phone, or video chat. This Interviewing A Classmate Video (below) will help you get started with preparing for the interview. As you watch the video, write down fifteen questions you would like to ask the person you are going to interview:

After the video, share the questions you wrote down with your teacher. Be sure to include open-ended questions and questions you don't already know the answers to. This is an opportunity to find out new information about another person!
