About The Community Profile: Oral History of People, Places & Events Curriculum Unit br>

This Unit focuses on strengthening your community connections through history, where students can gain a true appreciation of those who came before them. Through reliable internet research, students can learn about their own town history, identify noteworthy people, see colorful events (both past and present), and take virtual visits to places of interest. Students can become local history experts and share stories with others at school or within the community, and gain a sense of pride and value. They may also interview a parent, grandparent, community member, or local expert to enhance their project.

This unit provides instructions for downloading, recording, and editing audio, reliable Internet research advice, and podcasting information.Through collaborative group work, individual research, and classroom-centered learning, this unit will prepare students to navigate the Internet more efficiently. Podcasting projects allow students to become practical experts with audio recording software while creating a solid connection between the history and the future of the community.

This Unit contains an instructor preparation checklist and four important lessons:
  1. Podcasting and Audacity
  2. Reliaable Research
  3. Podcast Creation
  4. Sharing and Critique
