Oral History: What? Why? How? Guidelines for Oral History.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg. Bureau of Curriculum Services.
With the growing interest in oral history, this booklet provides guidelines for the development of oral history projects at the secondary level. There are various options for establishing oral history in the school program including an elective semester course, an independent study project, a minicourse, a cocurricular history club project, or an interdisciplinary course involving a number of curriculum areas. Descriptions of nine oral history curriculum-program options developed in Pennsylvania secondary schools are provided. Also included in the guidelines are a list of subject areas for student investigations, tips on interviewing community residents, a copy of an interview release form, tips for the use of interview materials, and two specialized questionnaires developed by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. These questionnaires provide subject content and questions for the study of local ethnicity, community life, and labor-management relations. A list of local and oral resources and school publications across the country which are based on the Foxfire model are also included. (Author/DE)
