2nd Annual Senior 2 Senior Tea POL
9:30 a.m. Thursday, May 24
Driving Question: How can I take what people learned in the 20th Century, and apply it to my 21st Century Life?
For the past month, the Class of 2018 has been meeting with residents from Oakmont Villages, a retirement home in Valencia, to gather advice to help them as they commence their adult lives. On the first visit, the learners participated in speed dating to get to better know the senior residents. They travelled table to table and interviewed the residents about their lives. On the second visits, learners were matched with seniors who had similar interests, and then they conducted a more in-depth interview with the goal of creating a literary or artistic piece that honored the resident. Last week, the learners returned with rough drafts and a bio in hand for the residents to give feedback. Was the information accurate? Did it honor the resident? Are there suggested changes?
On Thursday, May 24, the learners will present their Oakmont residents with their honor piece, and the bio at SCVi’s 2nd Annual Senior 2 Senior Tea. The learners will also decorate their table, and serve tea at this yummy POL.
