Assignment: Interpret Methods in Asking Questions
Instructions Assignment Instructions:
If you are like most people, you have at some point in your life played the game, “20 Questions.” In this game, Player 1 thinks of a person, place, or thing, and Player 2 tries to guess what it is, but can only ask closed questions that Player 1 can only answer with “Yes” or “No.”
For this assignment, you will conduct two separate role-played interviews (You can use the same volunteer for both – be sure to have all volunteers complete a consent form). Have your volunteer think of any two problems they might be facing in their life (preferably not real but imagined).
For Scenario 1, you must play “20 Questions” to determine what your interviewee’s imaginary Problem #1 is. You only get 20 questions, and only “Yes-No” answers are allowed.
For Scenario 2, you must determine what your interviewee’s Problem #2 is, but you are allowed to ask open-ended questions.
Based on your two mock interviews, imagine you have been asked to speak to an undergraduate Counseling Skills course. Create a PowerPoint presentation to compare the results of the two mock interviews. Include the following in your presentation:
· Explain how different kinds of questions are used for different purposes in interviews.
· Compare your experiences with both types of questions in this exercise. Which method of questioning felt more natural to you, and which felt like more work? Explain how your interviewee’s responses differed across the two sessions. Recommend questioning strategies to obtain needed information from clients, and then relate them to your future work as a helper.
Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as speaker notes for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists and should cite material appropriately.
Support your presentation with at least fivescholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.
Length: 12-15slides (with a separate reference slide) Notes Length: 200-350 words for each slide
Submit your consent form(s) as well.
Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style where appropriate. Save the file as PPT with the correct course code information.
