Read chapter 3. Given interviews, observations, and notes, students will write a 3-4 page essay that profiles a group or an individual and a place.
Profiles are included in both academic and professional writing and tell about people, places, and activities. In an academic setting, an education instructor may ask you to observe a Kindergarten classroom and interview a student. As a professional journalist, you may be required to profile a local sporting event like T-ball and interview the coach. The goal of an interview that profiles a person and an event is to give readers a unique insight into the people and the place. Profiles contain both a description of the surroundings, characteristics, and reactions of people who are interviewed.
Select a person, place, or activity to profile and write a vivid description of what you choose. Organize and interview and record your descriptions and the interviewee’s responses to your questions. Use quotation to identify direct statements, description to show the setting and their reactions to questions. In this essay, you will focus on gathering information about your subject through interviews, observations, and notes, which needs to be cited at the end of the essay as a personal interview.
