How to Plan, Set up, and Complete an Interview of Your Fellow Travelers

  • In each category find someone that interests you. Call or email ahead to schedule a visit with them. We’ve talked to these individuals, and they all know about your Quest and are eager for your calls!
  • If someone you know is doing work with one of these organizations or a similar type of work (use your best judgment!), you can interview them instead for one of your interviews.
  • Remember, you can do this as a class, a group, or alone.
  • You can ask them to visit your classroom or go to their place of work or even meet in at the T.R.E.E. office.

When you call or email them…

Tell them your name, that you have been to Sunship III, and are calling/emailing to schedule a visit. If they do not answer the phone, leave a message with the above information and how they can contact you. That’s it…they will take it from there!

When you meet with them as a class, a group, or alone…

For each interview, please do a short write up reflecting on your experience, either in your Ledger pages 30 – 33 and then get your teacher(s) to stamp OR through our web form as you complete each one.

You will want to think of questions to ask the person. Here are some general questions to ask:

  1. In what ways do you use energy and materials wisely OR demonstrate care for natural places and things OR develop a deeper personal relationship with the earth?
  2. Why do you choose to (insert category name here)?
  3. What is the most challenging or difficult part of your choice?
  4. What is the easiest part of your choice?
  5. What is the most rewarding part of your choice?

TIPS to TALKING WITH THEM:

  • Watch or read some other interviews. It will give you some good ideas of what works, and what doesn’t.
  • Imagine that you are being interviewed. What are some questions you would like to be asked about your life. What are some questions you would not like?
  • Be sure to write all your questions down in a notebook, then practice asking them with a partner.
  • Ask OPEN questions rather than CLOSED questions.
    • OPEN Question: Many possible answers
    • Closed Question: Answer is either yes or no

 

That’s it! Now you’re ready to complete your three interviews! Once you’ve finished that, you are 1/4 of the way through, and ready to move on to the last 3 parts.

 

Sunship Earth was an awesome experience! It actually made me feel more intouch with nature and I feel like it’s now my responsibility.
