Split the class into two groups by counting off. One group will be the reporters and they will ask the questions to their partner from the reading and the other partner will answer them according to what they wrote. The interviewees will pretend that they have been in the situation they are being asked about. The reporters will follow up with Wh- questions to discover the most interesting story. The reporters task is to discover the most interesting story and the interviewee has to make up the most interesting story.
I will provide the answers to the questions from the reading and then have them correct any errors that I heard on the whiteboard.
