15 October 2009

Dear ENG 121 Students (Fall 2009),

Please consult the handouts and advice given to you in class about conducting an interview (and then writing an interview essay).

However, if some of you still . . .

. . . need more guidance, perhaps some of the following resources will be helpful. In fact, if you DO find some of them helpful, please share your feedback with the rest of the class at our next meeting.

As with all "how-to" articles and videos you are given as ancillary learning materials, be sophisticated enough to disregard the parts of advice that conflict with your assignment. Remember, your assignment (and your score for it) come from me, not the people who prepared these articles and videos.
