Guest Interview

Guest Interview

A visitor from the food industry is invited to the class to be interviewed by pupils.

What to do:

You will need to pre-arrange a guest involved in the sustainable food industry. This might be a grower, a producer,  a chef or another professional. Ideally the pupils will visit this guest in their place of work, but if this is not possible then the guest can come to the school. As with the other guests, the pupils will prepare interview questions based on their learning, with a view to finding out new perspectives, viewpoints and ideas, and discover what their opinions are on what is being said by the guest. The guest will probably offer new perspectives on the subject, and may lead the conversation into new directions, eg by talking about growing vegetables.

As always, encourage the pupils to listen carefully, adapt their questions or come up with new ones based on what answers are given. It is also important to let the guest interview them.
