We have partnered with Exploris Middle School for two years to gather neighbor’s stories. Exploris teacher Sonja McKay leads a service learning project for 16 students each fall. Over the course of the semester, students work in teams to write letters of introduction, learn principles of oral history, learn how to use the equipment, learn interview techniques, interview a neighbor, and then work together to edit these pieces. Their work is then presented to the Oakwood community in an event held at the Tucker House on North Person Street in Oakwood.
