Special Person is a good way to get to know your students. Since it has been extensively described and blogged about (check out this process document and other free stuff by Bryce Hedstrom), I will focus this post on sharing my favorite resources for the classroom:

  1. Which questions to ask?
    • Mapping of possible questions based on your students proficiency level
    • Special Person Interview Posters for Novice learners
  2. Do students take notes during the interview?
    • They don’t have to but here is a good low accountability graphic organizer. This can be easily turned into a study guide if you want to formally assess your students, or a souvenir yearbook of our class if you want to give them something special.
  3. What to do after Special Person?

Happy interview!
