Educator Resources for Conducting an Interview

You've got questions, we've got answers! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby discuss the basics of conducting an interview. Tim explains that whether you’re writing a research paper or an article for your school newspaper, the interview process is more or less the same. You’ll explore how an effective interview is closer to a comfortable conversation with a friend than a robotic exchange of questions and answers. You’ll learn how to prepare beforehand, and how to use your questions most effectively during the interview. Finally, you’ll discover how listening can be just as important a skill in interviews as talking—if not more so. Got more questions? Good!
