For today’s beginning of class writing assignment, create a memo addressed to Prof. Ellis with the subject, “In-Class Interview of a Peer.”
You will serve as interviewer, and one of your classmates will be your interviewee. The memo’s purpose is to briefly interview a classmate about the article that they read for today’s class, cite the interview in-text, and cite their magazine article with a bibliographic entry at the end of your memo.
Your memo will look like this:
TO: Professor Ellis
FROM: Your Name
SUBJECT: In-Class Peer Interview
As requested, I am interviewing First Last Name about the article that they read for today’s class.
According to First Name, “<quote a sentence summarizing what your interviewee says the article is about>” (FirstInitial. Last Name, personal communication, November 19, 2019).
Their article’s bibliographic reference is below.
Henry, W. A., III. (1990, April 9). Making the grade in today’s schools. Time, 135, 28-31.
