Zellers, Donna; Zellers, Robert W.
Designed for adult basic education students at a fifth- to eighth-grade level, these materials explain the use of oral history as a means of learning about the past as well as improving student motivation, communication skills, and attitudes toward learning. Each of the eight chapters in the teacher's guide contains a vocabulary list, objectives, summary, and recommended teaching methods. The eight parallel chapters in the student guide present information at an appropriate reading level and give directions for learning activities. Chapter topics are choosing a subject, interviewing, taking notes, using the tape recorder, transcribing, composing the first draft, editing, and preparing the final product. (SK)
