Countdown to Millennium ~ An Oral History Project
A goldmine for teachers! Lesson plans, interview and videotaping techniques and radio interviews with the people of Appalachia. * This online resource is now a book, available for purchase. However, I was able to access the site via the Wayback Machine and many of the links are still available.
Library of Congress American Memory and Learning Page
Lesson plans, photographs, documents, videos, audio, maps, etc. The place to begin when using primary source documents! http://memory.loc.gov/ The Learning Page link
http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/ndlpedu/index.html also offers special resources for teachers.
Oral Tradition - Utah State University: Educational Resources
I offered this site in 2002 but it bears repeating. Five separate “how to” sections on collecting oral histories make it a snap! * The original site is now defunct but you may still access the resources via the Wayback Machine at this link: http://web.archive.org/web/20020102001224/http://www.usu.edu/oralhist/edu.html
