Chapter 3 Advanced Level: Task 2

Task 2: Listening in detail and making notes.

If you want to investigate parental perspectives in your own workplace or study, you may want to do your own detailed interviews. The following tasks are designed to support the skills you will use to analyse these interviews.

Watch the full video clip of interview with Jo’s mum. Jo is a 13 year old girl with complex speech and language difficulties. She attends mainstream school.

This is a longer clip than in other Teen Talk chapters, lasting about 12 minutes.

  • Watch the video clip carefully – you may even want to watch it twice.
  • Make notes on the content of the interview – you might want to transcribe sections or make detailed notes on Jo’s mum’s ideas and experiences.
