PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In my junior US History classes, I assign my students an oral history report. Students are to interview someone over the age of 65. It is great if they can interview a grandparent or neighbor. For students who cannot find an interview subject, I schedule a field trip where we walk to the local senior center and interview the residents there. All of my students, (even the ones who don't like history) really enjoy interviewing the senior citizens. They are amazed to meet people who lived through WWII and to hear about their lives when they were young. It really makes the history come alive.

In this packet, you will get a description of the assignment to hand out to students, an interview protocol which is a series of questions the students can ask their interview subjects and finally a page that provides a guide on how they should write up their findings. The final report is a 3 to 5 page typed paper.

We practice interviewing each other in class with a few questions, we practice saying hello and shaking hands as well. I tell them they are junior qualitative researchers.
