Topic: Oral History Interview

Watch the video of me asking the following questions to my elderly friend, Katrina, and listen along to her interesting answers. She was born almost 80 years ago and grew up in a poor family in London, before moving to the other side of the world (to Australia) as an adult and becoming a psychologist who worked in hospitals (she helped people keep their minds healthy). She has lived through so much change in her lifetime - including wars and huge changes in technology. How do you think technology has changed during your lifetime? What historical events that happened during your life have surprised you or scared you or excited you? How has your city changed during the time you've lived there? How do you think your personality has changed during your life? 1. Now interview your elderly friend or grandparent through video call, real life meeting or phone call today or over the weekend. Use the careful questions you planned on Monday. 2. Record your answers by taking notes or recording it, like I did. 3. Once you have done this, click add 4. Look at the checklist - be reflective and evaluate your interviewing by thinking back and ticking off the things you did/didn't do during the interview. 5. Click check to save your reflection! Keep your recording or notes of your interview safe, as we will use these to write up our own historical source next week!
