The Power of the Story: The Voice of Witness Teacher's Guide to Oral History
Voice of Witness; Mayotte, Cliff; Eggers, Dave
Voice of Witness is excited to offer the second edition of this resource to educators. The goals of this two-part guide are to provide educators with the tools and resources for teaching oral histories from the Voice of Witness book series in the classroom, and to provide step-by-step instructions for the creation of oral history projects with students. The “target audience” for the guide is primarily grades 9–12, with many lesson plans that are suitable for middle-school students. Our goal in creating this guide is to facilitate meaningful teaching and learning through the compelling lens of oral history. Since VOW’s inception in 2004, teachers in the United States and around the world have used the evocative narratives from our book series to explore contemporary issues in the classroom.
