Oral History: An Effective Means to Enhance Education in the Elementary Classroom.
Schipper, Stuart P.
Over 50 publications consisting of research papers, journal articles, books, and instructional materials dealing with oral history projects at the elementary school level are listed in this annotated bibliography. The citations are grouped into four categories: growth in cognitive and affective domains, organization format and aids, types of projects, and oral history materials on various subjects. Works listed focus on the topics of cultural journalism, interviewing techniques, processing of information, and oral history clubs. The section which lists available instructional materials covers the old west, the Depression, Indian life, and ethnic groups. Projects cited include plays, multimedia, photo displays, and open houses. A summary discussion about the materials presented suggests that oral history should be used in many subject areas to help students experience significant cognitive growth and positive relationships in behavior, outlook, and class attendance. All citations are listed a second time in alphabetical order by author. (KC)
