Please use these questions as a guide, not a script. Pick the ones that speak to you as the interviewer and help you tell a cohesive story about your subject’s experience. Add your own questions and ask good follow-up questions. Whether you’re answering the questions or interviewing someone else, please make sure the person on camera answers in full sentences and includes the question in their response. For example, “I first heard about the devious licks TikTok challenge when I saw students stealing soap dispensers...”
QUESTIONS for students, teachers or school staff:
