Oral History in Elementary Classrooms.
Mehaffy, George L.
Social Education, v48 n6 p470-72 Sep-Oct 1984
Oral history is a valuable teaching technique to use with elementary students because it provides a sense of self-identity; nurtures a concept of neighborhood; develops research and writing skills; and encourages a sense of curiosity, wonder, and excitement about history. Suggestions for beginning an elementary oral history project are presented. (RM)
