Decide what you want to use as your specific questions. Second, anticipate what the person being interviewed will answer. Use as many quotations from the text as possible. The answers should be consistent with things the character or narrative text says. Finally, plan the interviewer’s summary remark. Try to explain how the information in the questions/answers relates to the plot in general and thematic ideas of the novel.

    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.
