Step 1- Prewriting (Ahora) In class, your instructor will allot time to prepare for the interview. During this time, you will work in groups of 3-4 to create a list of 4 questions that you will ask the native speaker in order to find out more about his or her life story. 2 of your questions should focus on finding out about his/her personality, occupation, likes and dislikes, and free time activities. 2 questions should relate to his/her past, childhood family, arrival in the US, etc.

Step 2- Entrevista (Miércoles) In class, your instructor will invite a native Spanish speaker for you to interview. The interview may be either virtual or in person. The groups formed in class will take turns asking one question each for as long as time permits. Your instructor will provide you with a pre-writing sheet on which you should take detailed notes during the interview. Your notes will be collected at the end of the period, and returned to you on the day of the First Draft in class. You may write your notes in either English or Spanish, or a combination of the two. You MAY NOT write any complete sentences in Spanish on the pre-writing sheet. If you are unable to attend class on the day of the interview, you may choose a classmate whose notes your instructor will photocopy for your use during the writing process. Please advise your instructor.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
