Jmore Associate Editor Simone Ellin presented an interactive talk on interviewing skills on Oct. 27 to a group of 30 seventh grade students from Krieger Schechter Day School and approximately 10 older adults at the Edward A. Myerberg Center.
The talk was designed to help students and seniors prepare for a year-long oral history project they will undertake during the 2017-2018 school year called “Better Together.” The project will culminate in the students’ creation of digital legacies that the adults will be able to share with their families and future generations.
“I enjoyed myself immensely,” said Ellin. “The students were attentive and extremely bright, and the seniors provided some insightful tips that will surely be helpful to their young interviewers. It’s a terrific program!”
