Oral History: Let Their Voices Be Heard. Linking Learning with Life.
Haggerty, Patricia M.
This booklet provides information for creating an oral history project as part of a service learning program in schools. It shares a user-friendly approach to oral histories using one practitioner's experience during several years of classroom practice and a year as a Christa McAuliffe Fellow. The following topics are discussed: (1) the richness of oral history; (2) the subjects of oral history; (3) making community connections; (4) strategies for oral history projects; (5) the oral history and writing project; (6) using oral history in a standard-based society; and (7) the connectedness and meaning of oral history. Appendixes contain a bibliography that lists 10 references with war veteran themes and 16 books with intergenerational themes; a simple scoring rubric for biographies; steps for guided reflection; and 6 additional references.
