Oral Histories in the Classroom for ELLs and Beyond
Saturday, February 8 & Saturday, March 21, 2020, 15 Hours/1 Credit: Fee Applies
8:30am - 4:15pm
New York City Department of Education teachers are invited to register for Oral Histories in the Classroom for ELLs and Beyond.During this course, participants will explore how the use of student-driven oral histories augment speaking, listening and writing skills, which can empower English Language Learners while emphasizing the value of their own personal backgrounds and experiences.

Guided by Intrepid Museum Education staff and experts from Columbia University, participants will develop key competencies in questioning skills, interpreting facts gathered from anecdotal evidence, examining varied perspectives, understanding bias, synthesizing a complete picture of a historical event from multiple perspectives, and differentiating facts from opinions. Transcripts of oral histories from the Museum's collection will serve as texts for the course. Participants will have the opportunity to conduct research within the Museum’s archival collection, as well as identify and utilize other oral history collections presenting different narrative views. There will also be opportunities to interview former crew members and/or veterans for participants to practice skills learned. For the final project, participants will outline, conduct and evaluate an oral history project tailored to their specific class needs and content specialties. Student projects will be self-directed and emphasize personal storytelling. Participants will be expected to complete at least part of the project in their classroom in the month between the first and second sessions.
