Old Schoolhouse Gang: Some Guidelines for School Oral History Projects.
Montgomery, Janice, Comp.
These guidelines for conducting oral history projects are the result of the first efforts at school history of sixth-grade students at the Southside Elementary School, Columbus. While the guidelines stem from a project on a specific topic, they would be useful to students (even students beyond the sixth grade) who wish to do oral history work. Among the questions answered in these guidelines are: Where do I begin?; How do I prepare for an interview?; What do I take to the interview?; How do I conduct the interview?; What questions do I ask?; and What went wrong? An interview information sheet and a sample thank you and follow-up also are included. (DB)
