Conducting and Writing Interviews

  1. Watch an interview on one of the popular television “news magazines” or morning news programs. Critique the performance of the interviewer: How well does he or she ask questions that get to the heart of the subject rather than merely elicit canned responses?
  2. Write a short profile of yourself that combines quotes (you can make these up–after all, you’re the subject!) and exposition to create a sense of what you’re like as a person.
