Teach Starter Publishing
6 mins | Years: 5 - 6

An educational video designed to introduce students to the art of conducting the perfect interview.

If you would like your students to gather primary information on a topic through conducting an interview, this is the video for you!

While interviewing world-famous mountaineer Sir Edmund Hillary on the set of the documentary, The Famous Faces of Yesteryear, presenter Susie Sunshine is given a lesson or two on the art of interviewing by her experienced director, Miss E.

Miss E teaches the sunny (but not so bright) Susie to ask open-ended questions, to look for opportunities to ask follow-up questions and to demonstrate active listening – the perfect tools for the perfect interview!
