Oral History Project Ideas

Collecting oral histories would be a great project for social studies or language arts classes, especially when focused on a particular facite of life. If you need advice on type of equipment or additional resources, check out Wesley Fryer's post. I would also add that Audacity is a great free audio editing tool.

Several years ago I participated in a community theater production of Foxfire. The Foxfire story began when a group of students thought it was important to record an older generation's way of life. I also own a couple of the Foxfire books and enjoy reading how people used to live.
