This Oral History Research Project provides students a chance to learn "history next door" by interviewing friends and family members about their experiences with recent historical events. It helps students connect to history through their loved ones and neighbors and helps them remember history much better. The Oral History Research Project includes an assignment description, peer review questions, rubric, and instructor notes and hints when having students complete the project. Assigning students this project will make history more exciting for them to learn (and more exciting for you to teach). It is available as a word document so you can tailor it to your needs.
