Rough work evaluation

Final product:


5/6 different aspects of the artist or group: Give the separate headings:

Activity 5:

To be able to use interviewing techniques

[lo 2.5.2]

Choose one of the following ways of interviewing or any other choice of your own:

Panel discussion / Radio interview (without phone-ins) / Oprah Winfrey-type interview

First prepare your questions:

Rough notes on the types of questions to ask:


  • Leave a space between the questions.
  • Underline the operative words in each question for easy reference.

Now do the actual interview:

Activity 6:

To be able to write positive and negative reviews

[lo 4.6.1, 4.6.3]

Your group has performed in a large venue for thousands of fans.

Write two reviews: One praising the concert; one slating it.

Use the following to check whether you have covered every aspect of the concert:

CRITERIA PositiveTick NegativeTick
Who, what, where, when
Audience response
Backstage support
Sound effects
Stage personality
Highlight / low point

Extra notes to assist you

Please look at the following note on editing: they will help you:

Editing (the post-writing phase) is very important.

It has three main functions:

1. To correct grammatical mistakes

  • Sentence construction
  • Use of tenses
  • Spelling
  • Punctuation
  • Concord

2. To find out if you followed the instructions

  • Have you done what was asked?
  • Have you included extra creative requirements?

3. To correct the writing structure

  • A proper introduction
  • Body covering topic fully
  • Close, framing the work

Editing becomes second nature after a while.

Now that you have done all the activities in this module, re-draw the graph you completed at the start of this module.

The difference between your two lines is what you have learnt! Well done!

For fun, here is space for you to write the words of your own song. If you are satisfied, ask a friend who can write music to put your words to music. You never know – you could be famous one day!
