On September 27, 2013, sisters Danielle, Este and Alana of Haim released their debut album, Days are Gone. The album has a very elective sound, with it ranging from classic hip hop beats to funky guitar riffs. This is represented in songs like, “My Song 5” and “Running If you call my name.” Without fail, the sisters continue to portray their classic sound with synthesizers, dope drum beats and their hypnotizing melodic voices.

Eli Manning is a two-time Super Bowl MVP, with two rings under his belt and the title of leader of the comeback kids that are the New York Giants. But as his brother Peyton is looking like he’s going to have a record-breaking season at quarterback, Eli is also breaking records, just not the kind you’d want to break.
Through the first six weeks of the NFL season, Eli has led the Giants to a dismal 0-6 record, the Giants’ worst start since 1976 when the team started the season 0-9. There are a lot of pieces that factor into the poor play of the Giants this year, but Eli has to be at the top of the list.

Concepts: Conducting Interviews, Project Planning for Interviews
Continuing on last week’s lesson, we decided that the best way to become comfortable conducting and giving an interview is to practice! Since last week focused on creating questions beforehand and conducting an interview with scripted questions, I put the students on the spot and had them conduct completely improvised interviews.
Wednesday morning we discussed different questions that would be good to ask during an interview, and how the interviewer needs to write questions that are appropriate for the interviewee. For example, we came up with questions that would be good to ask a fellow student and then examined how questions for a teacher or parent interview would differ. As practice, I had the students draft five questions to ask each other in mock interviews, and then they took turns conducting interviews. This was excellent practice for being on both ends of the interview.
In the afternoon session, M’s interview skills had already greatly progressed and she was confident enough to interview Mrs. Jackson, her music teacher. Prior to the interview we discussed the pros and cons of pre-written questions versus improvised content, and that many radio interviews are conducted with a mixture of both approaches. She then drafted a series of appropriate ‘guide questions’ for a teacher interview, and was able to conduct the interview with Mrs. Jackson, who was able to provide excellent pointers for questions for future interviews.
