Popular Oral History and Literacy: A Handbook.
Breen, Mary; Sobel, David
This handbook was developed by Storylinks, a provincial network in Ontario, Canada, to encourage and help groups to use popular oral history as a learning tool. The guide provides suggestions for those involved as learners or teachers in oral history to practice their interviewing and storytelling skills. The guide is organized in nine sections that cover the following: (1) using history in new ways; (2) how oral history is different from written history; (3) what popular oral history is; (4) the steps to follow to do a popular oral history project; (5) practice exercises in preparation for doing oral history work; (6) the tools and equipment needed to do popular oral history; (7) release forms and documentation; (8) using stories for learning; and (9) further reading--four citations about oral history and four citations on popular education.
