Interviews About Interviewing

October 2, 2019

Last Friday, our 9th and 10th graders in our Local Issues curriculum conducted Interviews About Interviewing. In preparation for ethnographic field research that teams will conduct in the upcoming months, these informational conversations with professional question-askers proved to be a fruitful opportunity to learn about phrasing and ordering questions, maintaining respectful body language, how to deal with sticky ethical situations, and more.


Thank you to our guests for taking the time to speak with our students:

  • Laurie Ochoa, arts and entertainment editor at the Los Angeles Times

  • Sammy Roth, energy reporter for the Los Angeles Times

  • Ian Chang, former journalist and English teacher

  • Anais Plasketes, licensed marriage and family therapist

  • Alex Cohen, morning anchor at Spectrum News





From the notes they took during their Interviews About Interviewing, students created zines archiving their takeaways.
