Incorporating Oral History into the Curriculum: A Pathfinder.
Oral history is the recording and preserving of planned interviews with selected people able to narrate recollected memory and thereby aid the reconstruction of the past. It can be used in the elementary and secondary school classroom as a way for students to capture the history and lives of people not recorded and become a part of preserving history and culture. This paper presents a bibliography of sources of the theory and practices of oral history; curriculum guides; and examples of oral history in the classroom. The address for the Oral History Association is also provided. (Author/AEF)
