Say It Forward: Centering Marginalized Voices through Oral History

Erin Vong - Voice of Witness
Saturday 7/13/2019 - 11:15am to 12:45pm - Room: Carlson 219
Oral history projects create more equitable models for teaching and learning, as they make space for students to share their stories and see themselves as participants in history. In this hands-on workshop, teachers and community leaders will explore Voice of Witness's methodology and best practices for conducting oral history: creating a safe space for sharing stories, using listening as a powerful tool for empathy, and developing communication and critical thinking skills. These methods are adaptable for upper middle school through college level students.
