Winthrop Students Visit STMS


Fellow college students who attend Winthrop University came to visit Saluda Trail Middle School’s 7th grade Journalism class on Friday, October 9th. The college students all have majors in different fields of Journalism like broadcasting journalism and mass communications.

The students came to visit to show them how to be a better journalist. They assigned story outlines (who, what, where, when, how, and, why) and had them choose one to interview about, along with tips about creating interview questions. It’s important to ask open-ended questions, instead of just yes or no questions; that way more discussion and thoughts are given with the response. They also demonstrated the proper way to interview someone. The college students the class at least 5 minutes to brainstorm a list of ten questions or more to ask them. Once the interview was complete, and they answered all of the questions.

“I thought it was fun because they interacted with us like they were our age.” said Ka’Charriea Carter who is enrolled in the 7th grade Journalism class.
