Week 2 – Assignment
Interview Description and Preliminary Reference Page for the Final Oral History Paper
Read the complete description for the Final Paper in the Final Paper link. This paper will require you to select an interview subject, to formulate a list of questions you intend to ask him or her in the interview, to conduct the interview, and to synthesize the information you learn into narrative form and present it in a six to eight page final paper.
Here in Week Two, you must submit a one-page description of the proposed interview (with a properly formatted APA title page) and a preliminary reference page that includes at least three sources for the Final Paper. Your title and reference page must be properly formatted according to APA style guidelines. (The interview subject is considered a nonretrievable source and will not be listed on your reference page. The preliminary reference page should include the course text and at least two outside sources, at least one of which you obtained from preliminary research in the Ashford University Library or on the Internet.)
In your description of the interview, include the following information:
- The name of the person and his or her relationship to you.
- Why you chose this person to interview.
- The interview subject’s cultural background and the culture and/or subcultures to which he or she belongs.
- A list of at least six questions you intend to ask in the interview.
The paper must be one to two pages in length and formatted according to APA style. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.
