Middle Childhood/Adolescent Interview Fall 2020
Choose a child or adolescent to interview. If the child is 6-11 years (and not in middle school), use chapters 11-13 for your evaluation. If the child is 11-17 years (and in middle school or high school), use chapters 14-16 for your evaluation.
- Biographical Data:
- first name only, sex, and age of person interviewed
- share some information about the interviewee’s family situation: parents and other adults in the home, ages and sex of siblings, brief neighborhood description
- your relationship to the person who interviewed
- Interview Questions: These questions may be asked in any order – be sensitive to the age, feelings, and cognitive understanding of the person you are interviewing. You may need to reword or explain what you are asking using simpler language for younger children. You may need to ask your interviewee to add details or additional information in order to get a complete answer, but be careful not to suggest answers.
- How do you feel about yourself physically? What changes have you noticed? What do you notice about yourself in comparison to your friends or classmates?
- What do you see as the greatest problem facing the world? Why do you think this is such a big problem? What can be done to develop a solution to this problem?
- What is the greatest fear/concern facing you personally right now? Do you think other people your age have this same fear? What are you doing to resolve this fear/concern?
- How do you choose your friends? What kinds of activities do you enjoy doing with them? What do you do if you have a disagreement with a close friend?
- What are your career aspirations? (What do you want to be when you grow up?) Why are you interested in this career?
- Answer the question “Who am I?” in 2-3 sentences. Tell me something about how you see yourself; who you are.
- Describe a moral dilemma such as: “You are spending the afternoon with a friend of yours who isn’t very popular. You run into a group of your friends who invite you to go to a movie but they say that your unpopular friend can’t come. What would you do?”
- Develop one question of your own to ask your interviewee.
III. Use the appropriate chapters in your text to write a brief but complete analysis of where the person who interviewed is developmentally. According to the information about middle childhood or adolescence in your text, how does the child/teenager you interviewed compare to the text descriptions for physical, social, emotional, moral, and cognitive development?
- Your personal insights, comments, and opinions:
