Oral History: Research and Teaching Tool for Educators.
Lehane, Stephen; Goldman, Richard
Presents a rationale for the use of oral history, a method for collecting oral history, and descriptions of how oral histories have been used in teacher education courses. Using oral history is seen as a way of redressing traditional history's neglect of women, the popr and other second class citizens, as well as helping students realize that "doing history" is as risky as any other enterprise that attempts to arrive at the truth. Six oral history projects are discussed: (1) the Kent State shootings--interviews with children who were on campus at the time and adults who were actually involved; (2) American education, 1925-1976--American education as charted through the eyes of a first-grade teacher who remained at the same school for 50 years; (3) the Israeli War, 1973--a study of the perceptions of Israeli school children present during the war; (4) the Akron Head Start program, 1965-1976--interviews with original teachers, parents, and pupils; (5) three generations of child rearing--interviews with grandmothers, mothers and grandchildren; (6) life in a concentration camp--interviews with elementary school children of concentration camp survivors.
