About the Program

Explore the power of stories in this afternoon workshop that provides resources for bringing a participatory oral history project into your classroom. Participants experience the life stories of survivors of all kinds through audio and video clips, then learn techniques for conducting, recording, and editing oral histories from a panel of experts and StoryCorps, a national oral history project committed to recording and archiving the stories of ordinary Americans.
