LESSON TITLE: Basketball Interview
CURRICULUM AREA: Language Arts 1.01, 1.03, 2.01 / Technology
GRADE LEVEL: 6, 7, & 8
If you could interview a basketball player in the ACC, who would it be and what would you ask?
Students will write interview questions for an ACC player.
Talk about interviews on TV or in print and list common questions.
COGNITIVE TEACHING STRATEGIES:
Have students list information they want to know about an ACC player.
Students should write questions and follow-up questions in an order that
would encourage good transition from one subject to another.
Students can “interview” a partner to practice interviewing skills. The partner can make up reasonable answers to help the interview flow.
Rosters for each team. (Teacher can copy from ACC.com or students can access ACC.com)
RE-TEACHING AND ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES:
Re-teach: As a class, generate interview questions for a well-know ACC player and discuss follow-up questions.
Enrichment: Have students research an ACC athlete before writing interview questions.
Video tape a mock interview with your ACC player and share it with the class.
