Sender: Cultural History Forum From: Steve Schwartz Subject: Re: CONVERSATION Mime-Version: 1.0 Content-type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII Content-transfer-encoding: 7bit Perhaps just a little late responding to this forum, but I just came across an article in the November/December 1998 issue of Social Education (The Journal of the National Council for the Social Studies). Written by a teacher of AP American History, she relates tatics she employs in her class to help students develop their own family histories, methods of conducting oral interviews and the resulting discussion engendered when students begin to understand that their peers often come from backgrounds and experiences very similar and/ or very different from each other. Issues about concerns related to preserving one's own culture are noted. Again, it is one professionals observations, nevertheless, I think worth a peek.
