    Surface errors are pervasive enough that they impede communication of meaning.

    Some mechanical errors or typos are present, but are not overly distracting to the reader.

    Sentence structure is correct and occasionally varies. Language is appropriate to the targeted audience for the most part.


    Prose is largely free of mechanical errors, although a few may be present.

    Interview: Tips

    You are expected to touch on the stage of life of the person you pick to interview. Plan on interviewing different people during the course, not the same one each time.

    Ensure that it is a quality interview that you can bring together original thoughts as well as textbook information.

    Format the interview: I suggest the following:

    Original thought in the first paragraph. Open the essay up by discussing the reason that you are having the interview, who you are interviewing, what your thoughts are on the subject as well as what the text says. Do you have a thesis? What is the argument for your paper in the thesis.

    Interview: Setup questions and answers. Make sure that it is very clear what the questions are and what the answers are. (perhaps bold the questions.) Make sure that you organize this section well. Make separate paragraphs for each question.  Ensure that when you interview the person, that there is a logical set of questions that you have prepared ahead of time.

    Conclusion: Restate your main points and thesis. What did you learn from this? What can we say for society?

    Cite any references (Know APA! in text and on your separate reference page. How do you reference an interview?)  and make sure you have a title page.

    Use specific examples from your interview to highlight researched information. This is always a great way to write essays.

    Overall, I expect original thought, text information and an interview for a quality essay. Let’s bring it all together to create a thoughtful piece of which you can be proud.

    I hope this helps.

    In the GCU library it says that persona interviews are not put on the reference page for APA. When doing an intext citation, you use the first initial of their first name. I will provide an example. (R.Dipasupil, personal communication, February 11,2019). This does not apply to archived letters or interviews that are available on line.

    In a sentence it would look like this: In an interview, R.Dipasupil (personal communication, February 11,2019) stated this style of writing is tricky.
