Project #2 : Audio Record a Friend or Family Member
Audio record a friend or family member
With the audio recorders, designate one family member or friend that you can interview about the foods eaten during the week.
Some questions to get students started:
What is your favorite food? What do you like about it?
What is your least favorite food that you see other people eat?
Do any foods remind you of people or places?
Do you know where the food you eat comes from? Have you ever read the labels ?
What types of foods do they eat.
At what times during the day do you do most of your eating?
How, if ever, have your eating patterns changed from when you were younger? What are some of your cravings you feel guilty about eating?
Things to pay attention to include asking questions that will lead the interviewee to think and consider things in different ways.
Presentation of Audio Work
Using audio software, edit and finish your interviews. Things to consider include the final length of file, seamless editing and accurate representations of the original interview.
