This paper presents a proposal for an oral history project of schools and education in Elmira, New York from 1900 to 1996, as well as lesson plans, models and samples, expected outcomes, intercurricular connections, and application to learning standards. The proposal addresses process goals, expected outcomes, student assessment, identification of resources, and project assessment. It then presents 12 lesson plans on making contact, interviewing, conducting oral history sessions, and sharing. The models and samples present a task agenda, a sample assessment rubric, a venue arrangement checklist, an oral history session grading criteria, and a self assessment form. The paper then presents a total of six expected process and content outcomes; and also presents intercurricular connections of the oral history project to language arts, social studies, mathematics, art, computer technology, and organizational skills. It concludes with lists of information literacy standards and New York State Learning Standards. (RS)
