Oral History: A Look at the Literature for Secondary Teachers.
Pierce, Preston E.
Intended for secondary school teachers, the bibliographic essay lists publications on oral history available in the United States and Canada. The first section deals with access to the literature through Library of Congress subject headings, indexes (e.g., "Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature"), general bibliographies, an abstract review, and periodicals. The second section describes resources concerned with cognitive development and learning theory, the interpretation of oral history within a cultural context, ethics in the use of oral history, and the use of oral history to study the contributions of society's forgotten people. Publications which critique the oral history method and its application and oral history production manuals are described in sections three and four. Secondary classroom applications and Foxfire projects are presented in two sections. The essay concludes with a description of oral history directories and indexes. (RM)
