Oral History: A Tool for Adult Literacy. Script.
Ontario Dept. of Education, Toronto.
This document is a script for a videotape highlighting an oral history project conducted in Sarnia, Ontario (Canada), with Chippewa Indians. The script contains both a narrative explaining the process of implementing an oral history project and producing the tape and vignettes of the oral history as told by the older Indians. The script explains that an oral history project is a good learning experience, especially for older people and native peoples with a history of oral tradition, and that the most successful projects involve the learners from the start in deciding what to talk about and how to go about it.
