In preparation for your interview assignment this week, read this week's material on interviewing and then search YouTube for your favorite media interviewer (search their name and interview) and watch a clip.

Some guidelines:

-DO NOT USE A RADIO INTERVIEW OR AN INTERVIEW FROM A FICTIONAL MOVIE/TV SHOW

-DO NOT USE AN INTERVIEW WITH MORE THAN ONE INTERVIEWER OR INTERVIEWEE

-MAKE SURE THE INTERVIEWER AND THE INTERVIEWEE ARE IN THE SAME ROOM

-REMEMBER TO POST THE LINK WHERE YOU FOUND THE INTERVIEW

-Suggestions for good interviews include: 60 Minutes, Barbara Walters, Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Bill O'Reilly, Rachel Maddow, etc.

Consider the following:

What types of questions did the interviewer ask? Did you hear open questions that encourage an answer that is longer than a word or brief phrase (e.g., "So what happened next?"), closed questions that ask for a brief answer ("Did you see anyone else flee the scene?" ), or both?

How did the interviewer show nonverbal interest and support to the interviewee? Did the interviewer maintain eye contact? Did the interviewer and interviewee show synchrony in their nonverbal movements?

Who talked more, the interviewer or the interviewee? Did the balance of talking time appear appropriate?

Were there interviewer behaviors that were potentially unhelpful, such as giving advice on a matter of personal choice or preference, rather than helping the interviewee arrive at his or her own conclusion?

Given what you now know about interviewing, do you think this person is an effective and ethical interviewer?
