Teach 21: Lessons from the Heart
Using the National Public Radio (NPR) StoryCorps model for gathering oral histories, students will conduct and record interviews with family or community members. In the process, they will learn to ask open-ended questions, reflect on the stories and memories of their interviewees, compare and contrast the past to the present – and along the way, become oral historians.
About Teach 21 – Advancing Network Uses Grant: This project is funded by the state’s K12 High Speed Network (http://k12hsn.org) for the purpose of providing educators across the state with a vision for the meaningful integration of technology into the core curriculum and reinforcing 21st Century Learning Skills.
The lesson Wiki includes the objectives, procedures, standards alignment (both state and national), materials, and links to additional resources. The lesson includes this 2-3 minute video clip with teacher interview, student interviews and a snapshot of what the lesson actually “looked like” in the classroom.
