Upcoming Programs:

P-Credit Course – Oral Histories in the Classroom for Multilingual Learners and Beyond
Virtual Sessions: 9:00am-Noon on April 10, 17, 24, and May 1
1 credit course; fee applies
Learning about the personal experiences of those who lived through pivotal eras in history can help students of all ages and backgrounds understand history in greater depth with increased empathy. Furthermore, the skills used to record these personal histories augment speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills, which can empower Multilingual Learners (MLLs) while emphasizing the value of their own personal backgrounds and parallel experiences. Combining the Intrepid Museum’s exhibits with personal stories told through veteran narratives presents a rare opportunity for teachers. Participants will have the opportunity to conduct research within the Museum’s archival collection, as well as identify and utilize other oral history collections that present diverse narrative views. Through this course, participants will learn the skills needed to complete oral history projects with students, especially MLLs, in their own classrooms using culturally responsive practices and pedagogical methods specific to MLLs.
