This instruction text, the last in this year’s How to… series, covers planning, conducting and writing up an interview.


Before reading

  • Discuss famous people and list those you would like to interview, giving reasons for your choice.
  • Show interview clips – eg, from ‘Newsround’. Comment on the most entertaining or informative features.
  • Experiment with different question types. Evaluate which question word or type elicits the most useful information.
  • Introduce the poster as a piece of instructional writing which could help improve the quality of an interview.
