Developing an Oral History Project to Help Students and Teachers Analyze and Understand Educational Change.
Giesbrecht, Margaret L.
This paper describes the development of an oral history project designed to help both preservice and inservice teachers gain a sense of perspective as they deal with complex educational changes. Students in the Introduction to Education course were required to select a period of educational history or a topic, such as desegregation, which particularly interested them. They then developed a set of interview questions relevant to the topic and conducted an interview with an individual they had selected as experienced or expert on the subject. The completed tapes, along with a reaction paper relating the information in the tapes to class lectures, readings, and other interviews, were then submitted to the instructor for evaluation. A set of instructions on conducting, analyzing, and reporting the interview is attached. (JD)
