Product Description


This is the practical oral history guide that we've long needed. Those new to the field, educators, and even experienced practitioners will find much here to help bring in-class projects to the next level. -- Thomas Saylor, Concordia University This powerful and practical book brings together history, context, and clear examples of how oral historians work. Preparing the Next Generation of Oral Historians takes students out of the classroom and into their own communities, to learn by listening that the nation's history is the story of its people. I can think of no greater gift to offer. -- Doug Selwyn, Antioch University Seattle Center for Programs in Education In sum, Lanman and Wendling's Preparing the Next Generation of Oral Historians is the practical oral history guide that we've long needed. The specific examples outlined and discussed throughout the book, the careful attention to assessment and the meeting of standards, and the well-concieved and well-written individual pieces make this the new standard in the field. Those new to the field, educators, and even experienced practitioners, will find much here to take first steps or to help bring in-class projects to the next level. Strongly recommended. Teaching History Alessandro Portelli, in his insightful introduction to this volume, states that 'oral history is not just multi- but meta-disciplinary, not just a sum of separate scholarly and intellectual skills but a new synthesis of those skills.' Lanman and Wendling's new anthology is, likewise, a synthesis of approaches, presenting rich materials addressing issues in oral history education from testing to ethics, from kindergarten to college. This is a complete overview of an exciting field, overflowing with useful resources and valuable experience. -- Amy Starecheski, Columbia University Oral History Research Office

Product Description

Preparing the Next Generation of Oral Historians is an invaluable resource to educators seeking to bring history alive for students at all levels. The anthology opens with chapters on the fundamentals of oral history and its place in the classroom, but its heart lies in nearly two dozen insightful personal essays by educators who have successfully incorporated oral history into their own teaching. Filled with step by step descriptions and positive student feedback, these chapters offers practical suggestions on creating curricula, engaging students, gathering community support, and meeting educational standards. Lanman and Wendling open each chapter with thoughtful questions that guide readers, whether unfamiliar with oral history or seeking to refine their approach, in applying the examples to their own classrooms. The bibliography of further resources at the anthology's close provides interested educators with all the information necessary to transform their lessons and show their students' history's power as a living force within their own lives and communities.
