US1293 Interview (Police and Witness) and US26625 Speaking


This task relates to requirements for TWO NZQA Unit Standards for level 1:

  • US26625 Actively Participate in Spoken Interactions  (this is one of three pieces needed for this standard), and
  • US1293 Be Interviewed in an Informal, One-to-One, Face-to-Face Interview.

Students watch the short film “405” and take on the role of the driver whose car is landed on by a passenger plane.  The teacher takes on the role of a police officer who is carrying out further investigation into the event.
