CHM at Home | Teens

Storytelling is at the core of who we are as humans. It is how we learn, identify ourselves, and connect to others in the past, the present and the future. Oral history is both one of the oldest historical methods and one of the most modern, using and taking advantage of the latest digital technologies. In today’s activity, teens will learn how to conduct an oral history interview as they talk to a household member about their experience of the global pandemic. Share your findings with us with the hashtag #HistoryatHomeTeens.
