Partner Introduction Sample Questions
Partner’s Full Name____________________________ Period_____
**Use this list as a starting place for your interview. You do not need to ask all of these questions, and you may ask different questions if you want to. Follow up on your partner’s answer, and try to get more specific information. You might also ask some of the questions I asked for the Personal Histories assignment in Google Classroom.
Write your answers ON A DIFFERENT PAGE. Don’t try to squeeze the answers in the spaces below. Ask your partner for specifics and details. Say, “Tell me more about that,” or ask for examples. Be sure to ask “Why?”.
Be sure to find out how to PRONOUNCE YOUR PARTNER’S NAME CORRECTLY.
