Macon County Veterans Oral History Project in collaboration with students at Tuskegee Public School

Building on the relationship established with Tuskegee Public School during the 2016-17 project cycle, Auburn University 2017 ATP students mentored sixth graders in the skill and process of interviewing military veterans and producing digital content as part of the Library of Congress Veterans Oral History Project.  The Veterans Oral History Project provides volunteers an opportunity to collect oral history interviews that are added to a national collection and made available to the public via the Internet.  During project, ATP students honed their interview skills, which are transferrable to many employment situations, and in turn helped develop similar skills in the sixth-grade students with whom they performed the interviews.

The ATP students and sixth graders recorded and produced interviews on a dedicated web page built by students, and they prepared files for delivery to the Library of Congress.  Tuskegee Public School students joined ATP students by Skype and presented their work while ATP students physically handed the files over to the Library.
