US1293 Interview (Response to Documentary) and US26625 Speaking


This task booklet relates to TWO NZQA Unit Standards:

* US26625 Actively Participate in Spoken Interactions - this task produces ONE of THREE pieces required for this standard, and

* US1293 Be Interviewed in an Informal, One-to-One, Face-to-Face Interview

The task requires students to watch a documentary about Jane Elliot’s famous classroom experiment where she divided students in her class according to the colour of their eyes.  They then prepare for an interview about their thoughts on that experiment. They are scaffolded through with simple templates.
