Questionnaire for an interview about pupil's jobs          5th April 2002

Report:

In the last three lessons before the Easter holiday class 10d made an opinion poll about the topic "Pupil's jobs after school".

First we made two big circles with two smaller circles inside in our classroom, i.e. four circles with six pupils each. It was not easy to put the seats into the right order because we hadn't much time. Four girls of our class checked if we spoke English when asking the questions. Now we asked our partners and made a note of his/her answer. There were 11 questions, but when our partner had no job, we could go on with question no 9.

When we finished, our partner did the same. Then we gave a signal to our teacher that we had finished.

Now we did the same with all pupils on the opposite side. When we had finished we changed seats. The pupils who had been in the inside circle had to go to the outside of the other circle.

We did the same and asked our partners in the same way as we had done in the first part of our interview.

Then at the end of our task we compared our results in a big circle.

(For more details about the classroom arrangement for the double circle method see http://home.t-online.de/home/kfmaas/eclassro.html )

Altogether 16 pupils of our class have got a part time job, 12 haven't. Most of them deliver newspapers, are homework assistants or babysitters.

Most pupils work 1-2 hours a week. Nobody of our class works more than 3 days a week. They predominantly earn 5-6 € per hour and spend their earned money on clothes, mobile phones and their hobbies. 11 pupils think that this money makes them more independent of their parents and 15 pupils have still sufficient time for their hobbies and their homework.

All 28 pupils of our class are of the opinion that part time workers are needed and 21 pupils think that they can get a job easily.

19 pupils add that shop assistants are the most needed hands of all.
