Why is this a more interesting way to do “person on the street?”

What works about these videos?

What do you notice about the visuals?

What do you notice about the audio?

What question(s) do you find most interesting?

Which student(s) stands out to you? Why?

What techniques do you think the reporters may have used to conduct these interviews and get these kids to open up?
