    • Introduction Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ]
        • For this project we are going to incorporate our yearlong concept. Our overarching concept for the year is to take a look at what it means to be an American and what the “American Dream” is to ourselves and others. In order for us to have a better understand that there is no one answer to what that dream is, I am going to have students conduct on interview with someone whom they feel has fulfilled or is fulfilling the “American Dream”. In order to complete the interview, they will have to learn how to conduct an interview, ask appropriate and insightful questions, and produce a final project displaying their results.
    • The Task Student Page Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ]
      • In order to complete this project you will be fine tuning many of the skills we have developed throughout the school year such as
      • Interview skills
      • Note taking skills
      • Report writing
      • Technology development
      • Preparation
      • Grammar and Vocabulary

      • PowerPoint
      • Group work
      • And the list has the potential to grow!
      Title
    • The Process Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ]
        • The first task students will need to complete is research about how to conduct an interview. I have listed several websites that either describe how to instructions, or are good examples of interview questions.
        • After they know how to have a successful interview, I will put students into groups of three. Each of the three students will participate in the process in one way or another; the tasks will include
          • The Interviewer; this student will conduct the interview and ask the questions and record the responses
          • The Director; the director will find the person with whom the group has chosen to interview and set up the time and the place as well as ensuring the presentation will be applicable to the requirements.
          • The Producer; this student will work primarily behind the scenes setting up and taking care of any equipment, editing the final presentation, and ensuring everything goes as planned.
      • Although the students will each have their own designated tasks, the groups will work together to complete several critical elements including:
      • Choosing whom to interview
      • Deciding upon the method of final presentation
      • Creating questions to ask the interviewee
      • Developing the final presentation

    • Conclusion Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] Throughout this year we have read literature from a multitude of different authors, eras, genres, and cultures. This project will use the information we have gathered in all of our reading in order to effectively communicate what we believe the “American Dream” to be. This project allows for ample creativity as well as the opportunity to show me what you have learned. Try to incorporate as many of the skills as we have covered this year and try to be creative. Remember that I am open to any ideas you may have about the project, just make sure to approve them with me before it is too late.

        • For this project I am going to incorporate my yearlong plan for methods for Teaching Language Arts. My overarching concept for the year is to have students look at what it means to be an American and what the “American Dream” is to them and others. In order for students to understand that there is no one answer to what that dream is, I am going to have students conduct on interview with someone whom they feel has fulfilled or is fulfilling the “American Dream”.

    • Learners (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page
      • This project is designed for 10 th and 11 th grade American literature students. With more teacher guidance it could be adapted for slightly younger students (No lower than 8 th grade would be my advice). This has been designed for mostly independent work, and younger than 8 th grade the students might struggle with the independence, however, you may be able to adapt the lesson to a more guided lesson on research and interviewing.
      • Prior Knowledge Students will need to be successful:
        • Public Speaking Basics
        • Group work Etiquette
        • Interview Basics

        • The first task students will need to complete is research about how to conduct an interview. I have listed several websites that either describe how-to instructions, or are good examples of interview questions.
        • After they know how to have a successful interview, I will put students into groups of three. ( This can be done randomly, or alphabetically, but I prefer to be in charge of the groups to ensure the students have a fair distribution of types of learners, types of workers, and a variety of different thinkers). Each of the three students will participate in the process in one way or another; the tasks will include
          • The Interviewer; this student will conduct the interview and ask the questions and record the responses
          • The Director; the director will find the person with whom the group has chosen to interview and set up the time and the place as well as ensuring the presentation will be applicable to the requirements.

      • Developing the final presentation
    • Resources (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page
      • What is needed to implement this lesson:
        • Access to Computer Lab with internet access
        • Video or Audio Equipment
        • PowerPoint Access
        • Access to an interviewee
        • Access to a telephone, to make appointments

      Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
    • Evaluation (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page I believe that I will know this lesson has been successful if it meets the standards that have been stated, and that the students enjoy themselves. A few more details I look for are reports form those that were interviewed, I would like to know that my students were prepared, thoughtful, professional, a courteous. I will grade these projects individually to make sure that students get a fair shot even if the group dynamics were not perfect. I will grade based on the following rubric (adapted from Rubistar4teachers.org). I also think it is important that students flourish in the creative liberty I have given them. If students take this lesson and adapt it to their skills, talents, and interests, I will know it has been successful. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion

    • Teacher Script (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page
      • As a class, reserve a computer lab ahead of time. Have the selected list of websites that students will use. The list I have provided is extensive and may be repetitive. You may go through the list before hand and select 3 or 4 of the sites you feel are most valuable
      • Ensure students are staying on task, learning about proper interview techniques. For younger students, or more dependent classes, you may consider a worksheet leading students to your desired outcome- knowing how to conduct an interview.
      • When students have completed the research, move on to the interview portion of the directions.
        • Have students think of an easy access interviewee
        • Approve their selection (make sure it is a realistic option)
        • Have a conversation with the class about how to contact their selection, ask permission, explain the project, and set up a date
        • For younger students, consider requiring it be a family member
      • When Students have conducted the interview and have their nots about what was said, and/ or a recording, reserve the computer lab again.
      • As a class discuss how they would like to present their projects: poster board with important quotes, PowerPoint, ect.
      • Allow all students to complete their final project (majority to be done in class, with guidance)
      • Have students present their interview results in their selected method.
