Reflection Part 1:
How did it begin?
It began by me asking my grandma what was her favorite memory, and sinec she said the birth of her children we just continued talking about family.
What surprised you?
What surprised me was the story about my dad when he was 5 he walked from his school to his house.
What did you use in the interview that you’d learned the previous week?
Since I did my interview on the phone, I couldn't have done specific body language, but I was trying to be as attentive as I can, ad I asked questions according to the answers.
Reflection Part 2
Next time you need to collect a bunch of information and turn it into a piece of writing (whether it be an oral history interview, a research-based essay, or something completely different), what did you do this week that you’d like to do again, and what do you want to do differently?
next time I turn in a piece of research I will read it over 3 more times, just in case I have any typos or errors that aren't supposed to be there.
1. Look over the attached document, "Week 8 - what we did and why we did it." What, from what we did this week, do you think will be most helpful for you when you're conducting your interview?
Practicing interviews, and documenting them using the graphic organizer on Tuesday because that really helped us practice on how we will interview the person and the questions we will want to ask, and also how to continue the conversation.
2. How will you apply what you're learning about interviewing to other aspects of your life, now or in the future?
When we have another project, or when we want to start a conversation and learn about person and want to continue the conversation without turning it to ourselves.
3. How are you going to take your work on this project to a higher level than the work you've done in the past?
I will try to ask as many question as i can, without changing the topic completely and I will also try to make it as long as I can so I will have a lot to work with.
1. What do you remember best from the interviews you heard/read this week? Why do you think that is?
