The applicant reads his/h notes and submits them to the interviewer. The interviewer asks the applicant to tell him/her what the correspondence is all about.

    Let the students repeat the process with roles reversed, then to ask each other questions according to the roles played. Tell the students that they will be graded based on the following rubric.
