A project in which students interview local business owners as part of a unit on economics. Includes instructions for conducting an interview and interview questions.
From the contributor: In a unit on the economy, industry, and careers, I assign this project to students. Calling up an adult really takes them out of their comfort zone, but they find it very rewarding; it’s good real-life practice. I prepare a list of local businesses beforehand as options; I ensure that no business is taken by two students. The report is less important to me than the interview itself.
