New in 2011: Voice of Witness Oral History Project
This year, Aim High is excited to partner with Voice of Witness to offer an oral history project as part of our humanities curriculum. Voice of Witness, the nonprofit division of McSweeney’s, publishes books that depict human rights crises through the stories of the men and women who experience them. Their collection Underground America: Narratives of Undocumented Lives will provide a foundation for Aim High’s project, which will focus on immigration stories and immigrants in students’ communities. As part of the project, Aim High students will read personal narratives, interview community members, and practice transcribing and editing the accounts. Developed for 8th grade classes, the project will be piloted at Aim High @ Redwood City and Aim High @ Presidio (though all Aim High humanities classes will have access to the curriculum). To learn more about Aim High’s collaboration with Voice of Witness, contact Michelle Capobres at firstname.lastname@example.org.
