Activity 1:

To conduct an interview

[lo 3.1]

Work in pairs

Imagine yourself as a journalist working for You or Femina . You must interview a famous person to give your readers an idea of his/her lifestyle and personality. Now reverse the roles. It is important that you stick to your personal identity for the interview. Remember that you are an important and unique person in your own right. One doesn’t need to be Mark Shuttleworth to be “somebody”.

Here you have a list of questions that you might find useful during the interview. Feel free to add more questions if any characteristics that you know of are not covered by the list below.

  1. Where were you born?
  2. What is your home language?
  3. Do you speak any other languages?
  4. What is your favourite colour?
  5. What foods are you especially fond of?
  6. What film did you enjoy most? Why?
  7. What website do you visit most frequently? (If applicable)
  8. Who is your role model? Why?
  9. What is your best character trait?
  10. What is your worst character trait?
  11. What year has been your best up to now?
  12. What makes you furious?
  13. What was the nicest present you ever received?
  14. If you got shipwrecked and you could have only one person with you, who would that be? Why?
  15. Do you see yourself firstly as a sportsman/woman, academic person or cultural person? Why do you say so?
  16. What achievements in the above fields are most important to you?
  17. What occupation will you follow when you leave school?
  18. Who or what inspires you to give your very best?
  19. What is your best physical attribute?
  20. What is your worst or weakest physical attribute?
  21. If you could change something about your body, what would that be?
  22. What is your biggest dream for South Africa’s future?
  23. What do you still want to achieve in life?
  24. If a “fairy godmother” granted you one wish, what would that be? (Remember, the answer “That all my wishes might come true”, does not apply)

25. If you were to visit the earth in the year 3003, what would you expect to find here?

Group discussion

After the interviews, the class report back to discuss the answers (positive or negative) under the educator’s guidance.If time permits, one or more of the most interesting interviews could be repeated in front of the whole class.


Learning outcomes(LOs)
LO 3
Personal DevelopmentThe learner will be able to use acquired life skills to achieve and extend personal potential to respond effectively to challenges in his or her world.
Assessment standards(ASs)
We know this when the learner:
3.1 reflects on own abilities, aptitudes, interests and strengths as well as body image;
3.2 explains how to respond to peer pressure in different situations;
3.3 demonstrates compassion by caring for people and animals;
3.4 demonstrates peacekeeping and mediation skills in different conflict situations;
3.5 explains what has been learned by reflecting on an experience related to self-management skills;
3.6 describes and selects a range of problem-solving skills for different contexts.

are you nano engineer ?
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?

what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
