Identify the person you chose to interview. The person needs to be born in 1965 or earlier and have grown up in the United States. Please provide their first name only, age or generation, and their role in your life/community (leader, family member, friend, etc).
Interview: you will complete a “qualitative” interview. This means the interview is not a structured questionnaire, but rather beginning with broad questions and then asking follow-up questions, depending on what you are hearing. You will interview the person about their memories during the decade of their youth (when they would be old enough to remember events, probably around age 9 or 10 or older, but no older than their early 20’s).
Some areas to explore: the impact of social, civil or political issues of that time and their impact on the individual’s family. Clarify the person’s level of interaction with people of different ethnicities, socioeconomic backgrounds, or spiritual beliefs. Explore the gender roles and duties in their family? Did they experience differences with socioeconomic status as a result of the changing social issues?
Interview Paper (17 points): For this portion of the assignment you are expected to summarize the interview, provide an overview of their experience as a youth growing up in the United States, and discuss their views of today’s society. This paper is a summary of the interviewee’s experience. You do not need to include the questions from the interview. The total length of this paper should be no more than four pages (excluding title page).
