would loose the race.” Proof reading errors are 5 points a pop. ● Misspelled named automatic F ● She went to the store. She wanted to buy a Snickers. ● Comma splice- worth 5 points. ● Pronouns must agree with their antecedents. ● Its- possession. ● It’s- contraction for it is ● Its’ isn’t a word. ● There- location ● Their- possession ● They’re- they are Q & A- Due Feb 23 ● Find an individual in media. They have to be in for a minimum of 5 years. ● Don’t interview a family member, don’t interview a best friend, it’s a professional interview. ● Individuals who teach at VT aren’t options. ● The first step in the process is to see who is out there. Interview 50 minutes to an hour. Formulate Q’s ahead of time. 12-15 Questions. Prepare more questions just in case. ● Precision of Language in the Questions, don’t make silly Questions. ● Make Specific Questions ● Put Questions in Dropbox before you go to the interview. ● Do you research. Weave that into Questions. ● 2 Questions we have to ask: ● 1) Professional advice- What advice would you give to a COMM major that one day aspires to have your job? ● 2) Is there anything you would like to add? If you don’t get a substantial answer, don’t include that in your final draft. ● If the answers weren’t important to the question, take it out. Don’t use ellipsis points. ● Easy to Hard For questions ● Length- 4 pages single space. ● Format- Resources- Q & A example: ● Format- SAME AS vonnegut interview on scholar. ● Bio at the top of the vonnegut- share the individual's title, back ground, currently working as such and such a such and such. Sets the stage to ask the first questions. ● Set it up just like that example. ● Questions you submit to drop box- if you which the questions from draft to final it’s ok and if you need to ask follow up questions it's ok. ● First person should not be used. AT ALL.● Personal Questions- are fair game. How do you balance work life with personal life? Once you are away from the office what is your favorite hobby? ● Print front and back- his preference. ● Record the interview. Ask if you can record the interview. YOU HAVE TO RECORD THE INTERVIEW ● Innovation Space has recording materials to use if you don’t want to use your computer or phone. ● Individual interviews only. ● Face to Face interviews only. ● Send a card to the interviewer, I just wanted to thank you for granting me an interview. ● When you put the final draft together, make sure you ask them if its ok to record and or publish. ● Yes. I think that…. (minus 5 points Yes is not a complete sentence) ● Yes, I think that. Perfect. ● If it’s a fragment, use a dash. ● Give it to someone on a hard copy. ● Make a phone call, or drop by the office. ● If you don’t put all of the words in it, if you decide to take out sentences put them in another document with the sentences. ● Move anything around as best as it fits. ● Logical jump from 7-8. ● If you can take out like you can in a quote.
